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.
