#Thread of maps on Palayamkottai, now part of #Tirunelveli

As a city,Palayamkottai has a recorded history for more than a thousand years. It reached its zenith during the British era & was called as "Oxford of South India"

My first thread in 2022 is a tribute to #ThoPa
Palaymkottai was located in KeelKalaKootram, a revenue division in the east side of Porunai river (now called Thamirabarani). The fort itself was positioned to protect the lush farmlands & was at the intersection of the farmlands & pastures which designed its socio-cultural setup
Before the 1700s, the city was largely confined within the fort walls. But it had began expanding outside afterwards. The fort was a largely rectangular shaped structure with a number of bastions and four gates in four directions.
