Ashok Nagar is a residential locality situated at the southern part of Chennai, India. It was established in 1964. At the heart of this colony, stands the Ashoka Pillar. This four lion head stump, resembles the one erected by king Ashoka during the 3rd century BC at Sanchi.

To promote this suburban locality, the Tamil Nadu Housing Board constructed flats during the 1970s for middle-income group, covering an area of 7 sq km including the neighbourhood of K. K.

Followed by it was inauguration of Anna Community hall and sports club. In late 80s Udhayam Theatre complex and ESI hospital emerged.
