Theeyampakkam (Tamil: தீயம்பாக்கம்), is a developing residential area in North Chennai, a metropolitan city in Tamil Nadu, India

Location[edit]

Theeyampakkam is located in North Chennai with Andarkuppam in the east and Mathur to the South. Other neighbouring areas include Manali, Madhavaram, Kodungaiyur.

The arterial roads to Theeyampakkam are the Anna Salai (Andarkuppam-Redhills Road), Madhavaram Milk Colony Road and the Kamarajar Salai. This part of Chennai was considered socially backward a decade ago. However, due to rapid increase in need for quality affordable residential areas in and around Chennai, Theeyampakkam became a hunting ground for real estate agents. With the Inner Ring Road becoming functional the area was easily accessible from the Chennai Mofussil Bus Terminus.
