About Fernhill Palace

The Fernhill Palace was the erstwhile summer residence of the Maharaja of Mysore. The first bungalow was constructed as private property in 1844. Spread over 50 acres; the palace resembles a Swiss Chalet. The masterpiece features carved wooden bargeboards and an exquisite cast iron giving it a characteristic appearance. The palace is laid in between lush green lawns, conventionalized gardens and dense woods with the stunning views of terraced tea gardens and verdant valleys. There is also an impressive church like an indoor badminton court in the area. Apparently, the land of the palace was bought by a 12-year-old-prince at a meager price of INR 10,000. Now, the Palace is a heritage hotel that boasts of nineteen Regal Suites with bedrooms, dressing rooms, sitting rooms, spacious baths with Jacuzzi and a grand multi cuisine dining area. Nestled in the Nilgiri Hills of Ooty, it remains as an undeniable charm to locals and visitors alike.

Historical Context: In 1860, it was temporarily named Moonesami and served as one of the Ooty's earliest club hotels. The story has it that a twelve-year-old prince bought the then 40 acres of Ferrnhills property for Rs. 10,000.
