This Wikipedia page suggests that it is a neighborhood in Chennai, also going by the name Triplicane and having a slightly different spelling.

> Dear all,
> On my desk I have a Sanskrit Mahatmya in Telugu script. The title reads:
> Śrīmad-Āgneyapurāṇāntargata Tulākāverīmāhātmyam /
> Rāmānujapuram-Ānandaṇpiḷḷai-Ālaśiṅgarācāryeṇa pariṣkṛtam. (Mahatmya on
> the Tulakaveri feast, taken from the Agnipurana)
> In the second part it is said that it was printed by the Sarasvati
> Bhandara Press (Tiruvavlikkeṇi-Sarasvatībhaṇḍāramudrākṣaraśālāyām
> mudritam), in the year 1874/1875 (Bhāvasaṃvatsare ...). What is puzzling
> me is the name Tiruvavlikkeṇi. Is this a place name? According to the
> India Office Library Catalogue, this work was printed in Madras. So, may
> I conclude that Tiruvavlikkeṇi is Madras/Cennai or a part of it? Please
> help me to throw some light on it.
> I have put a scan of the title page under URL: <http://goo.gl/UZEYy>.
> All the best
