It is a town near Chennai in Tamil Nadu. The place is mainly known for the RamanujaSwamy Temple, also known as AdhikesavaPerumal Temple. While travelling to Kanchipuram a huge arch can be seen with a caption that reads 'BhagavatRamanujarAvatharithaSriperumbudur', birthplace of SrimadRamanuja, the great philosopher of 'Vaishnavism'. This leads to the ancient temple. The temple here has one of the three important images of Saint Ramanuja made during his lifetime which was set up in Srirangam, Sriperumbudur (his birthplace) and Melkote in Karnataka.
