Located in the eastern part of the Yercaud Hills, Pagoda point is a beautiful viewpoint where one is treated to a panoramic view of the entire town of Salem as well as the neighbouring village of Kakambadi. The twists and turns of the 21 hairpin bends of Yercaud can be seen from this spot as they envelop themselves around the hills. The mysterious piles of stones arranged in the form of a pyramid resembling a Pagoda give the location its unique name. These stones are believed to be placed here by local tribes.
Between the Pagodas here lies a temple devoted to Lord Rama. One can indulge in the amazing natural beauty of the spot and the scenery of the Eastern Ghats, with the greenery growing within the rugged terrains of the hills, entwined with sights of the craggy cliffs. The sunrise and sunsets at this viewpoint are quite lovely, and late evenings allow visitors to view the magnificent panoramic view of a lit-up Salem. The weather and tranquillity of this spot make the visit worth the trouble.
