Brief About Vellore District
Vellore had the previlege of being the seat of the Pallava, Chola, Nayak, Maratha, Arcot Nawabs and Bijapur Sultan Kindoms. It was described as the best and the strongest fortress in the Carnatic War in the 17th Century. It was witnessed the massacre of European soldier during the mutiny of 1806.

Vellore    district    lies between  12° 15’  to  13° 15’   North  latitudes  and  78° 20’ to 79° 50’  East  longitudes  in  Tamilnadu  State.   The geographical area of this district is 6077 sq. k.m. The total population as per 1991 Census is 30,26,432.

Vellore is the Head-Quarters of  Vellore District  is well  connected  by Rail and bus routes to major towns  of  the neighbouring states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and  Kerala. The history of the District assumes a great significance and relevance, as we unfold the glorious past. The Monuments found in the district give a vivid picture of the town through the ages. In the 18th  Century Vellore District was the scene  of  some of the decisive battles  fought  in Ambur 1749 A.D., Arcot 1751 A.D. and  Vandavasi  1768 A.D. as  a  result of the long – drawn struggle between the English and the French for Supremacy.

One of the monuments of Vellore is the Fort. A very close examination of the stone inscriptions suggests that the Fort in all probability might  have  been built during the rule of Chinna Bommi Nayak (1526 to 1595 A.D.). The Fort  is  one of  the most perfect  speciments of Military  architecture in South India. The Jalakandeswarar Temple inside the Fort is a very fine example of Vijayanagar architecture. The Kalyanamantap on  the left of the entrance, with  intricate carvings and delicacy of  execution  bears testimony  to the  engineering marvel and advanced state of sculpture of the times. Another landmark that has put Vellore on the Centre stage of Medical world is the Christian Medical College & Hospital.

The outstanding performance of this district in contributing to the Military service is commendable, as more and more men have enlisted themselves  to the Military service, to serve the nationa indomitable spirit and courage. The clock tower in the long bazaar, Vellore was built in 1928 A.D.. A stone  inscription in  the building  reads "VELLORE – FROM THIS VILLAGE 277 MEN WENT TO THE GREAT WAR 1914-18, OF THEM 14 GAVE UP THEIR LIVES" . This is a recorded testimony to the Vellore and Military prowess of men of this area.
