Kumudam is a Tamil weekly magazine published in Chennai, India. It was founded in 1948 by S.A.P. Annamalai, assisted by his childhood friend P.V. Parthasarathy. Now the magazine is published under the Kumudam Group, which also publishes other Tamil magazines including Kumudam Reporter, Kumudam Snehidi, Kumudam Bhakti, Kumudam Jothidam, Kumudam Theeranadhi. The Kumudam Group started a Telugu spiritual magazine called Kumudam Bhakthi Special.
In September 2015, Kumudam came under criticism when an article published in Kumudam Reporter had criticised women wearing leggings. The women's pictures used in the article were reportedly printed without consent. The article received considerable social media attention, resulting in a petition on Change.org, which received over 17,500 signatures.
