Coimbatore is the second largest city of Tamil Nadu and the 15th largest urban agglomeration in India. It is a major commercial centre, referred to as the "Manchester of South India". The Coimbatore region has been ruled by the Cholas, the later Pandyas, and the Vijayanagar Empire. Madurai Nayaks are believed to have been named after a chieftain called Koyan. In the 17th century, the city became a part of the Kingdom of Mysore until conquest by the British East India Company. The history of modern Coimbatore dates from the 1930s, when the city grew rapidly capitalizing on a textile boom.
