History of Oyangudi

 
 
 
 
 
 
Stories we heard from our village elders.
Group of people came from Kerala and settled around here. Most of them were palmrya climbers. And they depend on Palmyra Palms trees. These places were full of palm trees and helped them to do their job and settled around.
The Palmyra tree is the official tree of Tamil Nadu. In Tamil culture it is called karpaha, "celestial tree", and is highly respected because all its parts can be used. The recently germinated seeds form fleshy sprouts below the surface which can be boiled and eaten as a fibrous, nutritious food. The germinated seed's hard shell is also cut open to take out the crunchy kernel which tastes like a water chestnut but is sweeter. The ripe fibrous outer layer of the fruits is edible after boiling or roasting. When the fruit is tender, the kernel inside the hard shell is an edible jelly that is refreshing and rich in minerals. When the crown of the tree from which the leaves sprout is cut we get an edible cake.
