This is a satellite shot of Arunachala rising up with an elevation of 2669 feet (800m).

Though devoid of vegetation the hill stands in prominence amidst picturesque surroundings and is visible for miles around. This hill is of Igneous rock (connected with fire) which is one of the four kinds of mountains classified by geology. An American Geologist stated:-

"Arunachala could have been thrown up by the earth under the stress of some violent volcanic eruption in the dim ages before even the coal-bearing strata were formed."
