Brief Description:
The site includes the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, which was inscribed in 1999. The site now encompasses the Nilgiri Mountain Railway, a 46km long meter-gauge singletrack railway in Tamil Nadu State. Its construction was first proposed in 1854, but due to the difficulty of the mountainous location, the work only started in 1891 and was completed in 1908. This railway, scaling an elevation of 326m to 2,203m and still in use today, represented the latest technology of the time. It was highly significant in facilitating population movement and the social-economic development in the British colonial era.
