When you are traveling to a new location, there are several unique experiences one can come across. Panruti, a developing city in the Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu is one such place. The name of the city is derived from “Pann” and “Urruti”, which means composing songs and music, owing to the presence of many saints and religious singers such as Nayanmars and Vainavas who sang in the city. People from all over the world come and visit this place to get a closer look at its rich heritage.
A 150-year old government school built by the British Government and a five-foot-tall Panchaloha Gandhi Statue made up of Panchaloha (an amalgamation of five precious metals) are two attractions worth visiting for people keen on exploring the historical significance of Panruti.
