Nallur Village

The huge banyan tree(believed to be more than 200 years old) serves as the backdrop to the main street of Nallur. (Shown beside is the view of the tree from end of the street).

The area of the village is close to 2 sq Km with a population of around 2000. The main occupation of the current population is agriculture.

I am part of the family which descended from Venkatesa Iyer who lived during 1912-1975 with brothers Ramachandra Iyer & Somasundera Iyer. All of our family is out of Nallur now and settled in various locations in India and abroad.

Shown besides is the Ganesha temple which was built by our family in the village. Currently there is an Shiva temple which is being constructed, about which I would be posting more information in this blog. Any other descendants from this village are welcome to post their comments here.
