Also called the Sri Thandayuthapani Temple, this is located conveniently opposite UE square along River Valley road. The temple can get very busy during festivals and can cause traffic to bank up along River Valley road. On weekdays it's usually fairly quiet though and non-Hindus can enter the fron section of the temple but not proceed beyond.
