  • Archery was known all over India from as early as Vedic period
  • All the heros of the epics, Ramayana and Mahabharatha, were skilled archers
  • In Tamilnadu, the art was well developed during the Chola period
  • Stone inscriptions dating back to 1009 prove the existence of archery in Tamilnadu from ancient days
  • This art today is more a competition of hitting the target rather than a combat against another.
