ADAMS PEAK
 
 
 
WELCOME TO ADAM’S PEAK
 
This mountain [7362 feet], has at the top it’s peak, a huge footprint believed to be that of the Buddha, hence the name “Sri Pada” or “Holy Foot” sometimes applied to it. Tamil Hindus believe the footprint that to be of Siva, hence the name “Sivanoli Padam”: given to it by them. Muslims believe it to be that of Adam, the ancestor of mankind, who having being expelled from paradise set his foot on earth upon the mountain; and Roman Catholics attribute it to St. Thomas.

The Peak has been the object of worship and pilgrimage by kings and commoners alike over the centuries. The season for pilgrims is during the calm bright months from January to April when the incredible sunrise products the famous spectacle known as the “Shadow of the Peak”, which leaves all who have seen it spellbound.
