over 2 million. It is also called Manchester of South India. Originally Coimbatore district formed part of the Kongu country, the history of which dates back
to the Sangam age. It is found that in early days the area was inhabited by tribes, the most predominant among them being the Kosars who are reported to have
had their headquarters at Kosampathur which probably later became the present Coimbatore. However, tribal predominance did not last long as they were over-run
by the Rashtra Kutas. From Rashtrakutas the region fell into the hands of the Cholas who were in prominence at the time of Raja Raja Chola. On the decline of
Cholas the Kongu territory was occupied by the Chalukyas and then by the Pandyas and the cysalas.
