Special Notes

Neolithic habitat of human beings

The village Sellukudi is one of the earliest human settlements. It is one of the earliest human settlements of this subcontinent.  The occupants have a strange prefix to their community name “kurumba", which happens to be a name of a unique breed of sheep. This is a fine example of long gone past, where men and Mother Nature lived in amity.

The village Kurukkalyappatti is once known as Eeswarapuram, which implies that it has it links with ancient Tamil Theological Theory "Eeswara Sangiyam." A couple of years ago a statue was found buried in the lake. Now it is seated in a small cement stage and being worshiped by the village people. These new findings suggest that the village has a glorious cultural past. Further study required. It is strange to mention that the once famous Eeswarapuram has changed its name and now been occupied by scheduled caste. This village may have some hidden links to ancient Tamil culture.

The village Vadamalappoor has a small hillock called Keezha Kurinji Hillock. The hillock has a small ayyanar temple which deserves to be protected by the ASI. It is definitely a missing link of ancient Tamil Culture and worship. A few kilometers west of it lies the much renowned Chitthannavasal.

Myalappatti is another village which has a ASI protected monument. It has a strange small hill. The hill is strange because it is like a tub the outer edges are tall walls of stone and inner part has a small water spring. There is a eerie story about the vandalized temple at the top of the hill. This village may have missing links to Aasivaga, Eeswara Sangia faith.

Perumaanaadu, and Keezhapazhvanji are also important villages. Keezhapazhvanji has a dilapidated ancient palace. It is also a picnic spot during floods. It has a small dam which serves as a feast to eyes when flooded.

will be back with more
