Why We Use the Name Coromandel in Colombia

The Coromandel story goes back over two thousand years to the Chola Kings of Southern India. The land of the Cholas was called Cholamandalam. When the colonial Portuguese went to India, they corrupted the name to become Coromandel. The South Eastern coast of India (that was part of the ancient Chola Kingdom), came to be known as the Coromandel Coast.

When the colonial British were in India, they liked the name as well: they named four English Naval Ships (not at the same time of course), as HMS Coromandel. One of these ships visited New Zealand where people took a fancy to the name. They named a Town and even a Peninsula on the North Island as Coromandel.

Mano Chandra Dhas, the Managing Partner at Coromandel SAS, who comes from the Coromandel Coast, now brings the name branded on Corporate Travel management and related services, to South America.
