On its east are the well-known Malaya Hills (the southernmost part of the Western Ghats), while its western shores are washed by the waters of the Arabian Sea. It is one of the most densely peopled areas in the world.
The eastern portion is covered with magnificent forests comprising valuable timber of almost every description. The fauna includes all the larger animals to be seen in Southern India. Elephants, bison, bear, tiger, leopard, sambhar, and ibex, are the many varieties of fauna.
