Vanchi (Tamil: வஞ்சி) or Vanchi Muthur was the capital city of Chera dynasty, who ruled Kongu Nadu and most of the present day Kerala in southern India.[1][2] It is also referred to as Karuvur in the Sangam literature. The location of the historical city Vanchi is generally considered at Mahodayapuram (also called Thiruvanchikulam) near the ancient port city of Muziris in Kerala.[3][4][2] However, Karur in Tamil Nadu is also pointed out as the location of the capital city of Cheras.[citation needed]
