Shri Arunachalam Mudaliar, the founder of Santhana Srinivasa Perumal Temple at Mogappair, constructed the temple approximately 170 years back. After Shri Arunachalam Mudaliar, his descendants manage the temple.

Once a pastoral village, Mogappair has turned into a vertically-enabled residential neighborhood. It was once a sparsely populated back-of-beyond village. Today, Mogappair is a burgeoning residential locality that is punctuated with apartment complexes. A beehive of construction activity, one can always see some promoter or the other breaking ground on a 'vertical' project in this north-western suburb.
