The industrial town of Coimbatore has several unique sights from spiritual to culinary and history to culture that makes it a destination to visit.
I have been to Coimbatore several times and my last trip was my first family trip after the pandemic. The GeeDee Car Museum has a collection of cars belongs to G D Naidu, a well-known industrialist from the region whose passion was automobiles. Impressed by the engineering finesses of German automakers, he would also take classes on the workmanship involved in cars.
Also visit the Isha Foundation at Velliangiri Foothills, which is on the outskirts of the city. A space that is meant to explore the ancient science of yoga in a holistic sense, this is open for all and is founded by Sadhguru, Jaggi Vasudev, often called a modern-day spiritual Guru, whose teachings are not tied to any specific religion.
The Town hall market, the largest, has a range of apparel, footwear, books, furniture, electronics and more. Stop at the local vegetable market, the largest wholesale market in Coimbatore. A morning pitstop at the flower market is highly recommended as you can see a great variety of local flowers and it is guaranteed to give you a colorful start to the day.
