Best time to visit vellore

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. Home to the famous CMC college and several prominent engineering institutes, this quiet town has also evolved as a pioneer education center in the country. There is a lot to explore and experience here, for instance don’t miss the famous places to visit like Vellore Fort, Science Park, Vainu Bappu Observatory, stunning temples and beautiful churches when you visit here. Plan a day trip to Yelagiri, the famous hill station in south India.

Since Vellore is the top exporter of high quality leather goods, don’t forget to stock your shopping bags with exquisite leather goods such as bags, wallets and shoes. The city is also a foodie’s delight with loads of local eating joints where you can satiate your hunger pangs with the best of south Indian dishes and also other cuisines.
