About District

The Coimbatore is the third largest city of Tamil Nadu and one of the most industrialized cities in the state, known as the textile capital of South India. In the rain shadow region of the Western ghats, Coimbatore enjoys a very pleasant climate all the year round, aided by the fresh breeze that flows through the 25 kms long Palakkad gap. The rich black soil of the region has contributed to Coimbatore's flourishing agriculture industry and, it is in fact the successful growth of cotton that served as a foundation for the establishment of its famous textile industry. The first textile mills came as far back as 1888 but there are now over a hundred mills. The result has been a strong economy and a reputation as one of the greatest industrial cities in South India. There are more than 25,000 small, medium, large sale industries and textile mills. Coimbatore is also famous for the manufacture of motor pump sets and varied engineering goods. Coimbatore serves as an entry and exit point to neighbouring Kerala and the very popular hill station of Udhagamandalam (Ooty) is 70 kms from Coimbatore.
