Poolampatty, Edappadi, Salem
Poolampatty is a panchayat town in Salem district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The main occupation is agriculture here. It is located in Edappadi Taluk. The cattle’s rearing also adds to the source of income. This picturesque town is located on the banks of River Cauvery.
Poolampatty, situated on the banks of River Cauvery and with lush green fields, has all the potential for a major tourism spot. But it lacks enough infrastructures to woo tourists. River Cauvery separates Salem and Erode districts. There is a regular boat service between Poolampatty, located 55 km from Salem district, and Nerunjipet in Erode.
Hundreds of people use the service. The boats are operated for tourists only during Sundays, when the tourist flow is heavy. Poolampatty is the ideal location for shooting films. Rasukutti, Pownu Pownuthan, Mutrugai, Samundi, Thamarai, ninaithen vandhai, marumagan are the famous movies taken here. Tele shooting such as Sun TV Shivasakthi etc. was taken here.
