Saint-Cyran-du-Jambot is a commune in the Indre department in central France.

Saint-Cyran’s origins lie with a monastic foundation first founded by Saint Sigiramnus (Cyran) in the 7th century.[1] The foundation was first known as Saint-Pierre de Longoret (Longoretum, Lonrey) but was later named after its founder.[1] In the 17th century, Jean du Vergier de Hauranne, known as the Abbé de Saint-Cyran, served as abbot of this monastery. He was succeeded by his nephew Martin de Barcos. The monastery was dissolved in 1712.[1]
