Coimbatore is one of those few cities which offer the best in tourism and industry at the same. The second largest city in the state of Tamil Nadu, you will find an array of nature’s sights, a secular offering of religious places along with a sprawling industry.
Dubbed as the ‘Manchester of South India’ due to its textile industry, the city has welcomed migrants from neighbouring states to work in its mills and industries which have with time given the city a cosmopolitan feel. Most travellers use Coimbatore as a stepping stone before heading to Ooty or Kerala, however, if visited as a destination than a break on the way, you can unearth some interesting sights here.
There are countless religious places like the Marudamalai Murugan Temple, Naga Sai Mandir, infant Jesus church, a yogic temple and much more to visit; for the history lovers, there are quite a few museums which showcase the best of Indian and Tamil culture. If you happen to be an outdoors person, Coimbatore has an excellent national park, charming lakes, and gushing waterfalls. The city also has great avenues for golf, car racing and a flying club too.
You will love your time spent at Coimbatore.
