Situated at the entrance of the forest which leads up all the way to the exquisite Berijam Lake, Moir Point is one of the most significant viewpoints present in Kodaikanal. The place is named after Sir Thomas Moir who started constructing the Goschen Road in 1929 CE. There is a monument which mentions this and stands on the road joining the Kodaikanal-Berijam Lake. Since this place offers amazing views of the valleys, it remains one of the most crowded places in Kodaikanal.
Offering a spectacular view of the valley, Moir Point has always stayed as a hotspot for all the tourists out there. The Moir Point is situated at the place where the first grass was cut by Sir Thomas Moir to build the Goschen Road. Until 1929, the Moir Point was known as Fore Mile Road. The importance of the place lies in the long history that is associated with it wherein the entry of unauthorised people is barred. One gets a refreshing bird's viewpoint of the hills along with the villages which surround the region. Being a calm and serene place, tourists get to experience an ideal ambience where they can rejuvenate and unwind at the Moir Point.

This place is worth spending time at.
