'Knit City' of India is clean and relaxing ..
St Catherine Church is a big tourist attraction here. I was amazed to see its beauty moreover the feel of spirituality here will take you to the whole new world.
Not just church, the design and atmosphere of temples in Tirupur will leave you praising them all the time.
I recommend to learn a bit of Tamil if you are North Indian so that you can interact with autowalah here as they don't understand any of the language otherthan tamil.
Food here in Tirupur is not an issue. They are pretty good in serving you with the awesome traditional south Indian food as well as they have a good hand in North Indian food too.
It is my opinion that Hotel Velan, Maniam Classic and Ginger Hotel are the best of all the existing hotels in Tirupur. The visitors would love staying here ..
To reach here, You should take flight to Coimbatore and then take a cab to reach city. It will take not more than 45 minutes to reach Tirupur from Coimbatore.
A nice destination
We get Good Food as well as Good for Shopping Surplus Branded Clothes from Tirupur Market. Popular area is Khaderpet.
Road from Coimbatore to Tirupur is very nice and we can reach in 45 minutes to 1 hour depending which part of Tirupur we have to visit.
Climate was Hot during the day time but in evening it gets pleasant with mild rain in the evening.
I am heading to Tirupur
