Manchester of South India
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” or the “Textile Capital of 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.
