Lithograph of Koolikuldroog in the Nilgiri Hills by W. Spreat after an original sketch by Major Pouget and published in London c.1850. This print is one of a series of 'Views in India and in the vicinity of Bombay'.

The Nilgiri Hills, nila meaning blue and giri meaning mountain, reach a height of over 2,500 metres. They are part of the Western Ghats, a range of hills that separate the Western coast of India from the central Indian plateau and reach from Maharashtra to Tamil Nadu. In the 19th century, Nilgiri Hills became a popular retreat for Europeans escaping the heat of Madras.
