Mugalivakkam is a suburb of Chennai. It is situated 16 km south-west of Chennai on the Guindy-Mount-Poonamallee road. It is bounded by Porur on the north, Meenambakkam on the south and south east, and Ramapuram on the north east directions. The nearest railway station is at Guindy which is about 6 kilometres away. Porur junction is around 2 km away and Kathipara Junction is around 5 km away.

The word, Mugalivakkam, might have evolved during the brief Mughal rule of Poonamallee during the later half of the 17th century CE and the 18th century CE.[1]
