Tirupur Info

  • State: Tamil Nadu
  • Famous for/as: City
Tirupur is a textile town located in Tirupur district of Tamil Nadu. Located on the banks of Noyyal River, Tirupur is the administrative headquarters of the Tirupur district, which was formed in October 2008. Tirupur is easily accessible from all the major cities of South India as it is at a distance of about 459 km from Chennai, 291 km from Bangalore and 51 km from Coimbatore.

Tirupur is an ancient town. Tirupur was earlier known by the name of ‘Viradapuram’ or ‘Dharapuram’. References to the ancient town of Viradapuram can also be found in the epic Mahabharata, wherein the instance of re-capturing the stolen sheep-herds has been described. As per legends, Tirupur got its name from this incident – ‘Thiruppu’ meaning turn and ‘oor’ meaning place. Artefacts like coins, old pottery items, etc. have been excavated from Tirupur that points to its link to the ancient times.

Tirupur was also a part of the ancient Chola Dynasty which is evident from the earliest Chola stone carvings that mention about Kanchi Maanadhi (the Noyyal River) and its fertile sand depositions. According to these carvings Tirupur was a well sought-after fertile land.

The ancient Chellandi Amman Temple situated on the river banks of the Noyyal that displays early Chola style architecture proves its link to the early Chola period. Tirupur later became a part of the Kongu region which saw the establishment and expansion of Vijayanagara Power.  

Tirupur, ‘the Manchester of South India’, is known in different names such as, ‘Dollar City’, ‘Knit City’, ‘Cotton City’ and ‘History Centre’. Tirupur rose to the limelight as the knitwear capital of India in three decades. Today, Tirupur has gained universal recognition as a significant resource of hosiery, knitted garments, casual wear and sportswear. Since Tirupur is a textile hub, it caters to famous brands and retailers from all over the world like Walmart, Tommy Hilfiger, H&M, Reebok, etc.  

Tirupur, the textile city, has much to offer in terms of tourism. Sivanmalai, Konganagiri hill hock Temple,  Andipalayam Lake,  Thirumurugan poondi, Vaalai Thottathu Ayyan Temple,  Mettuparai Vinayagar,  Tirupur Tirupathi Temple,  Sukreeswarar Temple,  Avinashiappar Temple,  Udumalaipettai - Valparai Balaji Temple, Thirumoorthu Daam, Monkey falls, etc. are some of the popular tourist attractions of Tirupur. The city can be visited throughout the year.
