Iyyapanthangal (Tamil: ஐயப்பன்தாங்கல்) is a town (Panchayat Village) in the Kundrathur Panchayat Union[1] of Sriperumbudur taluk of Kancheepuram District, Tamil Nadu, India. It is located at a distance of 19 kilometres from Fort St George on the Mount-Poonamallee Road and is a suburb of Chennai. The nearest railway station is at Guindy which is about 7 kilometres away. The town is bordering Tiruvalluvar district.


The six-acre Iyyapanthangal bus terminus was opened in 1994.[2] It operates 162 buses[3] to places such as Koyambedu, Tambaram, Kundrathur, Sommangalam, Kovalam, Sunguvachattiram, Red Hills, Parrys Corner, Anna Salai, Tambaram, T Nagar and Mint. About 150,000 commuters take buses from here daily.

The state highways department undertook renovation of the terminus at a cost of INR 4.1 million in March 2010. The work to lay the concrete floor within the terminus area has begun. Among the 25 MTC depots, this is the first terminus to be taken up for renovation. The renovation includes construction of a compound wall, replacement of old lights, creating concrete parking areas for buses, installation of electronic sign boards, and raising the level of the terminus 1.5 feet above the height of Mount-Poonamallee High Road to prevent waterlogging during the monsoon. Facilities for toilets and drinking water for both passengers and MTC staff was also planned.[4]


As of 2001, Iyappanthangal had a population of 7,066 with 3,614 males and 3,452 females. The sex ratio is 955 and the literacy rate is 83.9.
