The Annamalai University owes its existence to the vision, wisdom, benefaction and philanthropy of Dr. Rajah Sri Annamalai Chettiar. As early as 1920, he founded the Sri Minakshi College at the temple town of Chidambaram. In 1928, the Annamalai University Act was passed by the Madras State (government) and Sri Minakshi College formed the nucleus of this unitary and residential University. With its rural setting and progressive outlook, the seat of this seminary of higher education came to be called Annamalai nagar after its illustrious Founder. Dr.Rajah Sir Annamalai Chettiar donated to the Madras State (government) a fabulous sum of Rs.20 lakhs and 300 acres of land besides the buildings, hostels, library and playgrounds of Sri Minakshi College, thus paving the way for establishing, the University by the MADRAS PRESIDENCY(Government) in 1929 and the founder was gratefully honoured by the Government with the Pro-Chancellorship of the University. During his tenure of Pro-Chancellorship for a long period of two decades, he took great care of the University and paid devoted attention to its growth and development. Whoever was found an expert in a particular academic field was approached by the Founder and was brought to the University to head the various departments of study.
