Colonial History and Heritage


While a small village, Jeolikot has a colonial past that is worth exploring with old ivy emblazoned cottages and cemeteries found tucked away in hidden corners and pathways.
Among the more popular cottages is the House of Warwick Sahib, a retired major of the British army who lived in Jeolikot. What made Major Warwick more than a footnote in Jeolikot's history is the fantastic secret hung on, till death, that he was actually a she!
Another bungalow with an interesting story is of a lady - a direct descendent of Napoleon Bonaparte - who came visiting to Jeolikot, fell in love with a local boy and stayed on.
