Vellore Tourism

Ancient history rules the town of Vellore, an administrative town located in the state of Tamil Nadu, a state of India. The carvings in ancient churches, mosques as well as temples, depict that the place once knew the meaning of actual art. It is also known as ‘Smart City’. The reason behind this is that it is a hub for the medical industry, modern education techniques, and the presence of large-scale industries. People from the Dravidian civilization were known to be established in this city. In addition to this, the word ‘Vel’ means the Place of the Lord Murugan.

The Vellore fort is one of the major attractions of this place because of its majestic structure and the ancient history about its rulers. Jalakandeswara Temple is another marvel at this place that depicts the style of art of the Dravidians. The Srilakshmi Golden Temple has a gold leaf covering and is a wonder amongst the sites that the city has. If you want to relax and calm down, Yellagiri is the place to be at because of the fact that it is a hill station and has clean lakes and pure air. Indeed, Vellore has so much to offer to the tourists and travelers.
