Boluvampatti

Boluvampatti is situated in Coimbatore taluk. The excavation was conducted at Kottaikadu, 3 km from Boluvampatti. The village is situated on the west bank of river Kanchi popularly known as river Noyyal, a tributary of the river Cauvery. 


Excavations yielded 50 semi-precious stone beads of various sizes and also large number of terracotta ear lobes. Other findings are iron objects, shell bangles, an important terracotta seal obtained from the bottom portion of a pit filled with terracotta lids and cups. Most probably this pit might have been used as kiln. One significant find is the terracotta seal with the royal emblem of a bow and a seated tiger, along with an inscription of 7th century CE characters.
