Erode, a beautiful town in Tamil Nadu, got its name from the Tamil phrase, Eru Odai, which means two streams. As the town is flanked by water courses, Perumpallam and Kalingarayan Canal, hence the present name. However, there is another belief that is attached to the name Erode. It is said that it is derived from Eera Odu, meaning wet skulls and there is an interesting mythological tale which is attached to it.
