The Malai Mandir is built to resemble the Swami Malai temple, Kumbakonam, which is one of the six famous temples of Lord Muruga. It is very peaceful and the idols here are very beautiful. Perfect for the Tamil people in Delhi to experience the Tamil tradition.

It has been one my favorite temples from childhood since I am born and brought up in Delhi. Beautiful temple and you get fresh breeze in the evening since it is on a hill.

As you stand & look from outside, this will give you the feel that you are not in Delhi but some where in south. The architecture used is same which is used in most of the temples in South india. Nice place to visit & purify yourself.

It was my Sister's Wedding in Nov 2015. When the boy came to Delhi for the Engagement we came to the temple to perform Maha Abhishek to bless the couple. You need to book in advance and the puja has to start sharp at the time prescribed. It was around 6pm. It was a beautiful feeling and I have always... More
