History and Growth of the Town
Pernambut was in existence from the Pallava period. During the 15th and 16th century, the North Arcot District was under the control of Hindu rules of Vijaya Nagar. In 1687 onwards North Arcot District was brought under the control of the Nawabs of Karnatic. During the beginning of 18th Century onwards Pernambut was brought under the control of British. From the above past incidents, through it is known that the Pernambut was in existence since 15th century. There are no protected or notified monuments at present to reveal the past history and perhaps they might have been ruined due to successive wars held during the past.
