Dharmapuri is a district in Kongu Nadu region in Western part of Tamilnadu in Southindia. It is the first district to be split from Salem district in Tamil Nadu after the independence of India on Oct 10,1965. The Other major towns in the district are Karimangalam, Palacode, Pennagaram, Harur and Pappireddipatti. Dharmapuri town is historically called "Tagadur".EtymologyDharmapuri was called as Tagadur during the Sangam era. The name Tagadur is from two Tamil words, "Thagadu" refers to Iron (Iron ore), "Oor" refers to Place. The name Tagadur is changed to Dharmapuri after the Sangam period, possibly during Vijayanagar empire or Mysore empire period. Still the name Tagadur is in use among some people of Dharmapuri.HistoryThe region is believed to have been controlled by the Pallava regime in the 8th century. The Rashtrakutas took over in the 9th century. The Rashtrakutas were defeated by the Cholas in the 11th century, and subsequently the district came under the Chola sphere of governance.During 18th century present day Dharmapuri district was under Mysore kingdom and it was called as Baramahal. As per the treaty of Seringapatam (signed on 18 March 1792) after Third Anglo-Mysore War, Tipu Sultan agreed to give part of his territories including the present Dharmapuri district to the British East India Company which was then merged into Madras Presidency.
