It is 29 kms from Chennai on the way to Kanchipuram. It is the birthplace of Saint Ramanujar, the Father of Visishtadvaita philosophy of Vaishnavism and hence an important pilgirim centre for the Vaishnavites. It was here that former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in 1991, by a Sri Lankan Tamil militant. A grand memorial marks the spot where he fell.
