Sriperumbudur, located in proximity to Chennai, is a town in the Kanchipuram district of Tamilnadu, India. Once a sleepy Panchayat town, it is today fast emerging as the Industrial nerve centre of Tamil Nadu.
The town also has its own historical significance. It is the birth place of Sri Ramanuja, one of the most prominent Hindu Vaishnava saints. There is now a temple of Lord Vishnu at his birthplace. Vellakotai Murugan temple is just about 9 km away from Sriperumbudur, where the tallest Murugan statue in India can be found.
