Coimbatore, the second largest city in Tamil Nadu, is a prominent
industrial town located on the banks of the river Noyyal. Being an
important hub of manufacturing, Coimbatore is widely acclaimed as the
Manchester of South India. The city is popular for Textile
manufacturing, handloom industry and agricultural related industries.
The region around Coimbatore in ancient days was known as Kongu Nadu
and was under the administration of local feudal chieftains. The region
witnessed many wars fought between local kings until finally it was
annexed to the British Empire in the 18th century. The rich fertile
black soil of the region, ideal for growing cotton paved way for the
proliferation of Textile manufacturing units as early as the year 1888.
The region has seen tremendous economic growth since then and now has
over a 100 textile units operating.
