About District


Vellore had the previlege of being the seat of the Pallava, Chola, Nayak,Maratha,Arcot Nawabs and Bijapur Sultan Kingdoms.The history of the District assumes a great significance and relevance,as we unfold the glorious past. The Monuments found in the district give a vivid picture of the town through the ages. One of the monuments of Vellore is the Fort.A very close examination of the stone inscriptions suggests that the Fort in all probability might have been built during the rule of Chinna Bommi Nayak (1526 to 1595 A.D).The Fort is one of the most perfect specimens of Military architecture in South India. The Jalakandeswarar Temple inside the Fort is a very fine example of Vijayanagar architecture.The Kalyanamantap on the left of the entrance, with intricate carvings and delicacy of execution bears testimony to the engineering marvel and advanced state of sculpture of the times. Another landmark that has put Vellore on the Centre stage of Medical world is the Christian Medical College & Hospital. The outstanding performance of this district in contributing to the Military service is commendable, as more and more men have enlisted themselves to the Military service,to serve the nation a indomitable spirit and courage.
