Kundrathur is a neighbourhood of the city of Chennai in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The Kundrathur Murugan Temple is located in this town. Tamil films such as Amman (1995), Nenjinile (1999) and Dhill (2001) are shot here.

There are many ancient Vedic shrines located here which have recently been studied by a team of researchers at Yale University.

The area is one of the 163 notified areas (megalithic sites) in the state of Tamil Nadu.[1]
