Counted amongst South India's oldest cities, Vellore is a fine place on the banks of the Palar River with a fairly large number of tourist attractions. The Vellore Fort here packs in most of the tourist attractions.
Vellore, a popular city in Tamil Nadu is a quaint place, otherwise well known for the Vellore Institute of Technology and the renowned Christian Medical College & Hospital. The city has a rich history and has witnessed the Revolt of 1806, a sepoy mutiny which was later echoed in 1857 on a much larger scale. Vellore has many historic and religious attractions. Just two of the most famous ones are Vellore Fort and the Jalakandeswarar Temple. Tipu Sultan's family was imprisoned in the former during British rule.

"South Indian Golden Temple"
reviewed on Jun 29 2014
Vellore is just one hour from Chennai by road and the roads are good. When we visit Vellore first we come across big colleges and institutes. The city starts with green trees and plantations. The city is clean in green with a perfect planning with many foundations and charitable trusts. The Vellore city is known for Golden temple which is in water where the goddess Shakti peet lies. The entrance is normal but as we move on the way goes on steps and later on water to the centre of the place where the temple is. The way to the temple is Star shaped and looks awesome when we see it from top. Later when we come out of the temple there is a school, college,hospital and other educational institutes under the temple management where poor people are freely treated. The famous VIT campus lies in the outskirts of the city. The city has road,rail and airways to visit the place . No one feels irritated with it and loves to visit again such is the mesmerising of the beauty.
