IN SEARCH OF HISTORY – KONGU NADU – PART- 4 KALAIMAKAL KALVI NILAYAM – ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM.

18, September 2015
I visited to this museum on 14th September 2015. Hope this is the only school has an archaeological museum in our country. Apart from learning the syllabus, students are taught our culture and our heritage through this museum. The museum has a great collection of coins since introduction stage may be from Sangam period when the metals are discovered. The collection of coins belongs  to various countries. Then the collection of Stamps too.

Old tamil inscription granite slabs, Nadukal ( installed in memory of a person who died for the noble cause ), Statues, reliefs, fossils, mud pots, weapons, precious stones, Palm leaf manuscripts, bronze/ impon (ஐம்பொன் - five metal combinations ) statues,  are worth to See. The collection also includes the precious stones used by our ancestors on the banks of river Noyyal. It is interesting to note that merchants from all over the globe had done trading in this region especially from Rome. There are some muthumakkal thali  kept on display, which are found in the school  premises during construction of a new building. 

The persons responsible for the collections are Selvi. M Muthiah and Iyya Meenakshi Sundaranar. They must be mad in collection of these rare artistic materials. It is not an easy task  to collect such rare item and we have appreciate their services, which will benefit to us. I also extend my sincere thanks to the present correspondent Mrs Mangalavathy for  her hospitality and Guidance for visiting the museum.
