It is a hindu temple of Lord Murugan and mostly visited by South Indians. It is located in south Delhi and quite well maintained. It is situated in a hillock since all temples related to Lord Murugan are build on a hillock.

I like the calm which surrounds the temple and prefer to go at times when there no rush ie avoid Puja time or on special Puja days to avoid the crowd and enjoy the calm and the serene air around this temple. You can come back feeling good once you visit this temple.

We visit this temple quite often and not only is the puja done in an authentic South Indian manner but the view from the top of the temple is also beautiful living up to its name 'Malai' meaning 'God of the hills.' You also get hot prasadam after your visit. A delight to visit.

Just 10 minutes from the airport during early morning. The temple is on a small hill. Is a calm place and is nice to visit in the early morning. A typical Soth Indian temple, very clean and spacious.
