Nestled at the foothills of the Nilgiri Mountains, along the banks of the river Noyyal, Coimbatore—also known as Kovai—is surrounded by lush forests and the Western Ghats mountain range. The “Manchester of South India,” Coimbatore is Tamil Nadu’s second largest city and one of India’s fastest growing metropolises. In the middle of it all, Le Méridien Coimbatore, strategically located near major businesses and a new IT park, offers a perfectly orchestrated escape from the urban pace. Additionally, Coimbatore International Airport (CJB) is just a ten-minute drive away.
Steeped in history, Coimbatore provides endless unique cultural experiences and sights, including the iconic Marudhamalai Temple, which is dedicated to Lord Murugan. Thirumoorthy Temple, meanwhile, is located at the foot of Thirumoorthy Hills beside the Thirumoorthy Dam. Perur Temple, Avinashi Lingeswarar Temple, and Velliyangiri Andavar Temple each offer an intriguing glimpse into the city’s past. For an enriching taste of nature, visit Sengupathi Waterfalls, Monkey Falls, the Siruvani Waterfalls and Dam, and Vaideki Waterfalls—all nearby. Or, observe the myriad elephants, tigers, panthers, civet cats, and birds that dwell in the Anamalai Wildlife Sanctuary, one of India’s oldest wildlife sanctuaries. Additionally, the picturesque hill towns of
Ooty, Coonoor, and Kotagiri are less than 100 kilometres away.
