Amazing place

I had been to Erode by train in November 2015. Erode is an important stop in the tourist circuit of Tamil Nadu. Erode is very much accessible through road, rail and air. The nearest airport to Erode is a two-hour drive from Coimbatore. There are many buses and trains to Erode from all major cities of South India. The must-visit attractions in and around Erode include the Vellode Bird sanctuary and the government museum. The vellode village is located around 12 kilometers from Erode and the Vellode bird sanctuary spans a total area of 77. 1 hectares and is home to many migratory birds and fish and other aquatic animals. The government museum in Erode contains inscriptions of the cholas and was opened for the general public in 1987. Tanjore paintings can also be spotted in this architectural wonder.

Erode Overview

History of Erode

Erode is one of the towns of Tamil Nadu, which is flanked by the Cauvery River. The town is located in the northern region of Tamil Nadu, as a headquarters of Erode District, which is spread over an area of 8,162 square kilometres.The word Erode originated from Tamil "Eru Odai", meaning two streams. Two water courses namely, Perumpallam in Surampatti and Kalingarayan Canal in Brahmana Periya Agraharam and Kasipalayam exist in the neighbouring villages. However, there are no streams in the original township.

People and Culture of Erode

The destination was part of the ancient Kongu country known as Kongu Nadu, dating back to the Sangam period. The area was occupied by tribes, most popular among them being the Kosars. Their headquarters was at Kosamputhur which is believed to have become Coimbatore. The Rashtrakutas overpowered these tribes but the region fell into the hands of the Cholas. With their decline, the Chalukyas took over Kongunadu and were later overpowered by the Pandyas of Madurai and Hoysalas. However, the town also witnessed the invasions of the Marathas, Mysore and British.The township possesses vast reserves of quartz, feldspar, black granite, colour granite, rough stone and sand. Besides, due to distinct soil properties, rice and crops like millets, cereals, pulses, sugarcane, groundnut and cotton are cultivated in the adjacent areas. Owing to this, the town has become a beehive of commercial activities.
