Peermedu Hill Station in Idukki

Peermedu offers scenic and extraordinary visuals which will not normally give one an idea of its colourful past. This area in Idukki district was named after a legendary Sufi saint, Peer Mohammad, and also served as summer retreat of the Maharajas of Travancore. To this day, one can also see the beautiful Ammachikkottaram, the summer residence of Maharani Sethu Lakshmi Bai who ruled the Travancore kingdom as Maharani (Queen) Regent from 1924 to 1931. Its pristine Government Guest House has hosted a plethora of famous personalities, with the first prime Minister of Independent India, Jawaharlal Nehru, sitting atop the list. Its wild and beautiful hills, set in a luscious green valley, soothe every weary traveller's soul. Throughout the year, it is among the most visited destinations in Idukki district.
