Tuticorin Tourism and Travel Guide
It’s going to be long haul…. I have been compiling information for quiet sometime but putting them in some sensible order is going to take time. I have not even planned how I would do this except for some mental images of the content. Wish me best & return to (hopefully) find interesting stuff here.

It is hard to beleive that this windy, dusty & heavily polluted town has more than 400 years of recorded history. It is even
harder to believe that such a history is almost at the verge of being forgotten. That & my interest in any history has prompted this site.
I will welcome any contribution to this site from like minded souls!
