History[edit]

Cheyyur, near chennai is a quaint village situated 29 km from Madurantakam, at Chengalpattu in Kanchipuram District of Tamil Nadu. This tiny hamlet was earlier called Jayamkonda-Cholapuram, Seyyur and Belapuri. In the early days, this area was a dense forest and kept as a reserve for the Chola kings to hunt.

An ancient temple called Cheyyur Shiva Temple, 800 years old, constructed during the reign of the Chola kings, is the major attraction. Near the Shiva Temple is another shrine dedicated to Muruga as an infant. In Tamil 'Sei' denotes 'infant' and the name of the village (Seyyur, later Cheyyur) is derived from this fact.
