Over the years several places have developed in the states of Indian subcontinent
. The state of Tamil Nadu
is not an exception in this regard. Amongst several places that have developed here one can easily demarcate the significance of Karamadai. Located in the district of Coimbatore of Tamil Nadu , Karamadai is an example of a residential locale . One finds Karamadai, which is positioned on the pathway ` along the Kovai-Mettupalayam-Ooty Highway`. Strategically, this Karamadai town is situated approximately between 11.27° N and 76.97° E. It also rises to a height of 353 meters or 1158 feet above the mean sea level.
For identifying the characteristics of a place it becomes imperative for a layman to get a first hand knowledge about the demographical scenario of that particular place . In case of Karamadai also the same tradition is applicable. Thus to enlighten people on certain aspects of its demography, several demographers have conducted numerous surveys and thus prepared reports accordingly. Experts have considered the census report of India that has been published in the year 2001 to be of significant in this matter. According to this report , the total population of Karamadai has been enumerated to be 27,799. From the aforesaid report, an interesting thing has been inferred. Both males and females who are residing in Karamadai are in equal proportion. In other the male populace constitutes of 50 percent, while the female populace also is the same. In Karamadai, 10 percent of the population comprises of children who are below six years of age.
Few things about the literacy rate also can be deduced from this Indian census report of 2001. Whether a place has achieved development or not can be observed if one thoroughly analyses the literacy condition of that particular place. As far as the Karamadai is apprehended, its average literacy rate conforms to its development. The reason also is cited. The average literacy rate of Karamadai is higher than that of the entire nation. 73 percent and 59.5 percent are the rates of the average literacy rate of Karamadai and India respectively. To be specific, the rate of male literacy constitutes of 79 percent. 67 percent is the rate of female literacy of Karamadai, which is less than that of males.
Aranganathaswamy Thirukoil is one of the premiere attractions of Karamadai. It enhances inflow of tourists in this place. There are other tourists` locales in the adjoining areas as well. For instance, from Karamadai, one can reach Coonoor is which is at a distance of nearly 11 miles from Karamadai . Also the picturesque Ooty lies at a distance of 20 miles from here.
