First biodiversity heritage site
Location: Madurai

The Tamil Nadu government, under the Biological Diversity Act 2022, has issued a notification declaring Arittapatti village as the state's first biodiversity heritage site.

It extends over 193.21 hectares of land and includes seven barren granite hills.

The hills act as a watershed that supports 72 lakes, 200 natural spring ponds and three check dams.

The site also features megalithic structures, Tamil Brahmi inscriptions and 2,200-year-old rock-cut temples which add to its historical value.
