The Village

Several villages make up the administrative district of K V Kuppam with the village of K V Kuppam at the centre. The village itself is more like a small bustling town but it is very rural in culture and outlook. The district is on a broad plain about 7km north of the Palar River which at most times is just a dried up channel. This plain runs between two ranges of hills which give the area the feeling of a large valley. To the north are the foothills of the Nandi Hills, north of Bangalore. To the south are the Jawadi Hills, which extend south west to form the Nilgiri Hills.

Main road through the village

The main road between Vellore and Gudiyattum runs through the centre of the village.
