The Grange Overview

Ranked 17 of 23 sightseeing in Yercaud

Grange, constructed in 1820, is one of the oldest architectural wonders located in Yercaud. This castle was built by collector M. D. Cockburn. It was also the first commercial plantation area for coffee, oranges and apples in this hill station.

According to a belief, it is said that this place in the late 1800's was used as a summer resort by Robert Clive of English East India Company. In addition, the place has a huge cellar that can hold huge quantities of provisions.

During the Sepoy Mutiny, this building was very active and it was at the same time that gun placements and canon-bearers were added to the existing building. At present, a beautiful resort is located besides the building.

A place with adventure sports

Adventure sports are interesting and good in the cool weather. Motor bike ride through the tree plantation for 1000 meter/400m/100m is really interesting. High altitude rope walking gives a new experience. A bit expensive if all in the family decide to go for all the sports. Some more sports are there.

Nice Estate

Read about the Grange and went there to see the plantation but was disappointed as the apple and orange orchards do not exist anymore. Only coffee is being grown there. The residence of Robert Clive was closed to public and we could not visit it. We were informed that it would be opened in a year's time.
