  • Mr. John Sullivan who was the British Collector of Coimbatore in 1817 contributed a lot for the development of the Nilagiris and he deserves even a better memorial. The John Sullivan Memorial at Kannerimukku near Kottagiri has a good collection of photos of the past Kotagiri and the vehicles used then. Though we don't have much to see here, the history says that Mr. John Sullivan contributed a lot for the development of Nigiris. He was a great man with a vision and while seeing this memorial
  • Excellently maintained memorial on the founder of Ooty John Sullivan .. It exhibits various rare photos on foundation of Ooty
  • Nicely maintained premises with vintage culture by th John Sullivan Memorial Committee. All weekly days working except Thursdays. Timing 10 AM to 5 PM. A Lady warden is available to explain tourists and visitors. All can donate liberally in aid of maintenance salary to staff etc to the committee. For donations receipts issued. One Mrs Gayathri of the local village is available to attend visitors and her name cell phone number board is available on the outside wall of the premises. Everyone should visit the memorial of the great man who visited Nilgiris long back with aim to find out Nilgiris suitable for settlement.
  • It portraits the rich heritage of John Sullivan in his early days. This museum has artifacts of Sullivan himself. With a recent renovation, it takes us back to his early days.
  • What a lovely place. John Sullivan is technically the father of modern Nilgiris. Go here to understand the stories of different tribal groups such as Irulas, Kotas, Badagas, Kurumbas and Todas. The Nawa ( Nilgiris Adivashi Welfare Association) has contributed a lot to this place. If you are in Kotagiri do visit this place. The staff are also very friendly and have immense local knowledge!
