Vanchi (Malayalam: വഞ്ചി, romanizedVañci) was a headquarters of Chera dynasty, who ruled central Kerala and western Tamil Nadu (the Kongu country) in the early historic south India. The exact location of Vanchi is matter of a debate among historians. It is speculated that the location was identical with medieval Vanchi Karur (modern Karur).[1]

The following medieval Chera (Kerala) capitals were also known as "Vanchi".
