Ooty is a picturesque town located in the beautiful hills of Nilgiris. The official name of the town is Ootacamund and has been abbreviated to Ooty for the convenience of the tourists who flock in large numbers to this hill station of south India. The town is part of the Nilgiri District in the state of Tamil Nadu. The Nilgiri Hills that surround the town of Ooty is responsible for its scenic beauty. The hills are also called the Blue Mountains. Some people believe that the origin of this name is because of the Kurunji flowers that bloom once every 12 years in the valley. These flowers are blue in color and impart a bluish tinge to the hills when they bloom. The history of the town can be traced back to the tribe of Todas, who occupied it before the East India Company took over the reins of the place in the beginning of 19th century.
