    Veerapandiya Kattabomman (Tamil: வீரபாண்டிய கட்டபொம்மன்); also known as
    Kattabomman was an 18th century Palayakarrar ('Polygar') chieftain from
    Panchalankurichi of Tamil Nadu, India. His ancestors migrated to Tamil Nadu
    from areas in present day Andhra Pradesh during the Vijayanagar period.
    Also known as Kattabomma Naicker he was among the earliest to oppose
    British rule in these regions. He waged a war with the British six decades
    before the Indian War of Independence occurred in the Northern parts of
    India. His native village Panchalankurichi in present day Thoothukudi
    district of Tamil Nadu and some polygars families migrated to vedal village
    in Kanchipuram District. *Let us know our Heroes...*
