The hilly charm and natural appeal of Yercaud touches every visitor through its view-points that offer panoramic vistas of its surrounding cliffs and townscape. The Pagoda Point or Pyramid Point presents amazing sunrise and sunset clicks for the eager eyes. Tourists love the place for the vantage view of the Salem city, Kakambadi village and the engulfing cliffs.

The place has got its name due to the presence of four mounds of stones that have been arranged in the shape of a pyramid and resemble temple towers. Known to be built by the locals, the Pagoda Point has a Rama Temple positioned in-between the stones which is a shrine dedicated to two anionic stones held in high reverence among Malayalis. The towering cliffs are undeniably every rock-climbers' delight.

  • The Pyramid Point or Pagoda Point is located on the eastern part of Yercaud Hills.
  • It is sometimes referred to as the Gent's Sea as well.
  • Though it has a better view than Ladies Seat, yet the journey atop it is quite risky and is hence a Government protected area.
