About the City
Coimbatore, also known as Kovai, is the second largest city of Tamilnadu, and one of the fastest growing cities in India. Located in the shadow of the dense and vibrant Blue Mountains, the Nilgiris, Coimbatore has the ranges of the Western Ghats to its North, South and West, which leaves only one Western Exit – the Palghat Gap. It is the breeze that blow through this tiny gap in the rugged mountains that endow Coimbatore with a pleasant climate all year round.
Coimbatore began as a tiny village named as ‘Kovan Puthur’ that was part of a well-defined geographical unit called Kongu Nadu. It was neither renowned to be part of any major empire, nor have there been any great rulers. It quietly passed through the hands of several Hindu dynasties and kingdoms before finally passing into the hands of the British, who gave its present name Coimbatore.
With the passage of time came elaborate irrigation schemes and the harnessing of the hydroelectric power, which led to the development of this area into one of South India's finest agrarian economies where millet, paddy, cotton, tea, oil seeds, betel nut, turmeric, coffee and tobacco are cultivated. Subsequently, the city has become one of the leading industrialized districts not only in Tamilnadu, but also in India.
Coimbatore has got the entire infrastructure required for an industrialized economy. True to the composition of a prospective metropolitan city, Coimbatore has a well-developed social infrastructure including hotels, health services, recreational spots, research institutions, professional colleges, two universities and one deemed university and commercial complexes.
Of the many temples in Coimbatore, the Perur Patteeswara Swamy temple situated 7 km west of Coimbatore near river Noyyal and the Marudhamalai temple of Lord Muruga, 12 km from the Railway Station are most famous. Shiva is the presiding deity in the former and the greatest attraction of the temple is the 'Kanaka Sabai' or the golden hall, which is adorned by a gold plated statue of Nataraja. Pilgrims from all over visit this spot to pay homage to their ancestors. The latter temple is situated on a hillock and the presiding deity is called Dhandayuthapani.
