Report on CMC


The name Vellore is derived from Tamil words: Vel (spear) + oore (city), means a city of spears. Ancient history shows that Vellore was basically a battle field, where the warriors used to fight. In another version, name Vellore is supposed to have been derived from some precious stone which had similar sounding name. There are megalithic, proto-historical evidences in and around Vellore for such a semi precious stone industry being prevalent in ancient time. Vellore has the blend of a rich heritage and culture representing the ancient Dravidian civilization. Vellore had the privilege of being the seat of the Pallavas, Chollas, Nayak, Marathas, Arcot nawabs and Bijapur Sultan Kindoms. The monuments found in the district give a vivid picture of the town through the ages.
