  • The oldest and most renowned bookshop in Ooty set against the backdrop of the mountains, offers a quiet refuge to book lovers, amidst the din & bustle of Ooty market. A must-visit for book-lovers.

  • There was not much stock in the store -They shall to have consider feasibility of continuing this shop in Ooty as there has been no proportionate business -Devendra Phanikar Osuri Senior Proffesional -Balacola Nilgiris
  • Very old building (~50+ years) which was merged with the other discontinued Higginbothams which was 110 years old, total making it ~175+ years of business. A lot of genres are available but not many books. The store is great and aged and owner is friendly.
