Coimbatore times..

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
This post is nothing but an ode to the heavenly city Coimbatore..I'm missing it a lot.Especially the Coimbatore monsoons..Indeed,I've a natural tendency of falling in love with every place,I live..Its just a matter of  more or less...that's it..:-).When we got transferred to Coimbatore,the second largest city in T.N,we've no idea about the place..The only impression I've on this place is,that it's the victim of major bomb blasts in 1998..The city is major commercial centre in Tamilnadu known as the Manchester of South India..It is also an important textile manufacturing hub of the state..Naturally we took an advantage of buying so many cloths ( that will be sufficient for the coming 5 years by the way..:-)..Our credit card bills were always high.:(.Here I'm sharing few pics of the places in and around Coimbatore..

Our house was located in a very nice area but far from the heart of the city....Some corn fields and domestic cattle were there near by our house...The best thing in Coimbatore is its fantastic weather...Between June and August,you will surely have an eye feast of Coimbatore monsoons...Race course road was our favourite hang out place..

I liked it for one more reason,There is a huge population of Telugu speaking people whose ancestors settled there since long period...There are traces of Vijayanagara dynasty also..

Udagamandalam ( Ooty-the queen of hills ) is nearest hill station for Coimbatore..Its just 98 km from Cbe...The Pollachhi road is simply awesome with trees on both sides and good coconut plantations.We enjoyed some long drives in that way..There are so many famous temples near by the city like Marudamalai,Perur Patteeswarar temple,Avinashi,Mariamman koil etc....its simply 1 to 1 1/2 hr.drive to reach all these places...The famous Isha Yoga centre of Sadguru,Sri Jaggi Vasudev  is also very near to Coimbatore..We got few visits over there..The Dhyana linga of Isha is very huge...We came across so many simple pleasures and bagged some nice experiences in that beautiful city...Missing you Coimbatore.
