Interesting Facts About Coimbatore :

Coimbatore is by and large an industrial city with textile mills and where several small, medium and large scale industries flourish. This city, also known as Kovai, is one of the major cities of the state of Tamil Nadu and is situated on the banks of the river Noyyal and enclosed within the Western Ghats. The climate is pleasant all year round, due to the presence of forests to the north and the cool winds blowing through the Palghat gap in the Western Ghats. Along with the south-west monsoons from June to August in the elevated areas of the region, the city also receives the North-east monsoons from October to November. Thus visiting Coimbatore in the winter months from late November to February would be ideal.

From being a small tribal village capital called Kongunad, which was taken over and ruled by several dynasties till it was finally taken over by the British along with the rest of the state and renamed Coimbatore, this city has come a long way. Due to the rich black fertile soil of the region, agriculture has flourished and the successful growth of cotton trees has been instrumental in the establishment of the now famous textile industry, earning the city its nickname of ‘textile city’. Coimbatore also encourages the entrepreneurship skills of its residents and the existence and growth of over 25,000 small and large scale industries has led to the city being titled the ‘Detroit of the south’. Catering to nearly half of India’s requirements of pumps and motors, Coimbatore is also referred to as ‘Pump City’.
