A place with a rich history of step farming that has gained
worldwide recognition


Dates back to the pre-independence era

Poombarai is a small village located in the Kodaikanal hill station in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The history of Poombarai dates back to the pre-independence era when the British ruled India. The village was inhabited by a group ofย  ancestors, who were primarily hunters and gatherers.

During the British colonial period, the ancestors were forced to give up their the traditional way of life and adopt agriculture as their main occupation. They were introduced to the technique of step farming, also known as terrace farming, which involved creating level platforms on sloping land to enable cultivation.

Over time, the ancestors became skilled at step farming and developed their own unique methods of terrace farming. They used stone walls to build the terraces, which helped to prevent soil erosion and retain moisture in the soil. They also developed an efficient irrigation system using the water from nearby streams and springs.

Today, Poombarai
is renowned for its
step farming, and
the village has
become a popular
tourist destination
