Chennai to Vellore is the most popular route among tourists as a historical destination. Vellore is also crowned as "The fort city", because of its stunning Vellore Fort. Vellore has a very rich heritage, which can be seen in the temples, monuments, forts, and mosques in this city.
"The name is said to have originated from Vel which is the main weapon of the Hindu deity Murugan or 'Velayudayaan' (one who bears the spear). The word then literally means - The place of Murugan. The name Vellore is derived from the Tamil words Vel + uur meaning City of Spears."
Vellore Fort is the most prominent archaeological landmark in the city. Situated in the heart of the Vellore city, the fort was built by Vijayanagara kings and is a fine example of military architecture. The fort houses a church (St John’s Church), a mosque and a Hindu temple (Jalakanteswarar Temple).
