Sriperumbudur ("திருபெரும்புதூர்") is in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu located 40 km west south-west of the city of Chennai. It is famous for being the birthplace of Sri Ramanuja, one of the most prominent Hindu Vaishnava saints as well as the town where former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated in 1991. Since 2000, Sriperumbudur has seen rapid industrialization, attracting huge investments due to its proximity to Chennai port, infrastructure growth, establishment of STPIs and SEZs and availability of quality manpower.
Sriperumbudur is strategically placed on the Chennai-Bangalore highway, just about 40 kilometres from the city, and offers all facilities that the international industrial giants want for their business to operate in the country.
The old name of Sriperumbudur is Bhoodhapuri. It is believed that the doors of heaven will be open for those who die at Sriperumbudur. The planned greenfield Chennai Airport will come up in Sriperumbudur. The new airport is planned to have four runways.
