Tambaram Sanatorium

Tambaram Sanatorium (Tamil: தாம்பரம் சானடோரியம்) is a locality between Chromepet and Tambaram, in Chennai, India. The neighbourhood is served by Tambaram Sanatorium railway station on the Chennai BeachVillupuram section via Tambaram of the Chennai suburban railway.

It was originally a part of Tambaram, but later developed as a separate town due to the railway station and the TB Sanatorium and the Madras Export Processing Zone (MEPZ) located there. Along with TB Sanatorium, an institution was started by the State Government, for giving training to socially and economically deprived women (better known as Service Home). Before MEPZ came, a big FCI godown was started to store food grains for public distribution system.
