Pallavaram is considered to be one of the oldest inhabited places dating back to Paleolithic Age, discovered by British archaeologist Robert Bruce Foote in the year 1864.

Veteran Lines, a famous Anglo-Indian locality in Pallavaram, was created for World World II veterans. After the end of British rule, they have taken up jobs in few of the earliest private sectors such as English Electric Company (then “Areva” and now “Alstom T And D India Limited”).
