For the past 24 years, every year, Mangani exhibition is held at Krishnagiri.
Though Krishnagiri and its surroundings were for a long time producing sweat and high quality Mangoes, and as Krishnagiri along with Dharmapuri was with Salem district previously, the mangoes produced were called as Salem Mangoes.
Tamil rhymes for kids praise the quality of maampalam produced in this part of the Tamil country.
Yesterday, Agri minister Balakrishnan inaugurated the 24th maangani exhibition at Boy’s school ground in Krishnagiri.
Dinosers, mayil (peacock), entrance arch were decorated with Mangoes which gave a good taste to eyes too!!!
