Welcome to Coimbatore

Welcome to the City of Coimbatore. The second largest city in Tamil Nadu is known by many names - 'The Manchester of South India' - for its excellence in cotton, yarn and hosiery industry; 'Educity' - for being an educational hub with world class universities and education institutions; and now also as 'Medicity' - for having a large number of highly advanced specialty hospitals that attracts patients and doctors for training from world over.

The city is well connected by air, rail and road and is well known for its culture and hospitality. It is also the gateway for the three hill popular stations - Ooty (also known as Queen of Hills), Munnar which has sprawling tea gardens and Kodaikanal which is well known for its beautiful lakes. There are many more local sight seeing and shopping options that will keep the family busy and engaged.

Coming to Coimbatore is always an experience.

‘Coimbatore is not just a city,
It is an Emotion’
