Vellore has a one or two cosmopolitan touches, thanks to a couple of tertiary institutions and the American-founded Christian Medical College (CMC), one of India's finest hospitals, which attracts both medical students and patients from across the country. There's not much reason to stop in this dusty bazaar town on the main Chennai–Bengaluru road, but if you do, the temple inside Vellore fort is worth a look. Many Indians come to visit the golden Sripuram Temple, 10km southwest of town.
