Tippu Sultan, the associated King of Mysore Kingdom used to travel along this route. When he had the plan to extend his kingdom to Coimbatore,he took Mysore-Nanjangud-Chamarajanagar-Sathy route to execute the plan.The mode of Transportation was with either Bull or Horse carts.He had placed many of his soldiers and Horse shoe fitters along the villages of this route.Even today, we can see large number of Muslim settlements in Kavalande of Nanjanagud Taluk and in Chamarajanagar.So,in historical perspective,Chamarajanagar-Coimbatore section of NH -209 is important.

Road Widening

Four lane road proposed from Dindigul to Coimbatore, considering the traffic and growth on the Dindigul-Coimbatore-Annur road. The road passes through the Coimbatore city and it is popularly known as Sathyamangalam road. Within the city stretch, the proposed flyover at Gandhipuram would traffic and ease congestion on Sathyamangalam road. Due to heavy volume of traffic between Saravanampatty and Annur the authorities proposed to have this stretch into a four-lane one. The other section covered 42 km from Annur to Sathyamangalam which will be converted into two-lane including the Dhimbam Ghat Section.
