History of dharmapuri

Dharmapuri was once known as Dhagadur, a name derived from the words Thagadu meaning iron and Oor meaning place. The earliest known chieftain to have ruled Dharmapuri belonged to the Sangam era, after which this region was controlled by the Rashtrakutas before passing into the control of the Chola dynasty. \nDuring the period of the British Raj, Dharmapuri was an integral part of what was known as the Salem district in those times. Other historical significances can be found through the rock sculptures seen here, some of which date back to as far as the Neolithic age. There is a government museum in Dharmapuri where one can view these sculptures. \nDharmapuri received the status of being an independent district in Tamil Nadu in the year 1965. It was the first district in the state of Tamil Nadu as part of independent India and went on to be bifurcated into the Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri districts in the year 2004.
