Frequently visited by history lovers, Dolmen circle is considered to be a great hiding shelter, dwelling and burial places for ancient men, dating back to around 5000 BC. The hideout was like a storeroom to many valued belongings. The Dolmen Circle is put-up with two large erected stone slabs, topped by a large flat slab.  

It is one of those major attractions of Kodaikanal, where you get to know more about the lives of pre-historic people who resided in the region.

There were many other such dolmens which were destroyed, however only few can be seen in Perumal Peak and Shenbaganaur Museum.
