Senthamangalam is a state assembly constituency in Tamil Nadu, India, that was formed after constituency delimitations in 2007.[1] The seat is reserved for candidates from the Scheduled Tribes and comprises portions of the Rasipuram and Namakkal taluks. It is a part of the wider Namakkal constituency for national elections to the Parliament of India.[2]

Prior to the 2007 demilitation exercise, the local constituency was called Sendamangalam. That, too, was reserved for candidates from the Scheduled Tribes.[3]
