Situated at a distance of 57 kilometres south-west of trichy and 53 kilometres north-east of Dindigul on the national highway NH 45, it is located almost at the geographic centre of the state.

Below point i taken from Tamil literature.

First word ilanga means Characterized by beauty of movement, style, form, or execution. Suggesting taste, ease, andwealth. And second word Kurinji [1] means Mountainous Region.
