It is in the heart of the city. But the road is a little congested from back of the temple. Also, the architecture of the temple is good.

Its a nice temple devoted to Lord Kartikeya (Swami Murugan) who is elder brother of Lord Ganesha. Its hardly 10 km from the airport and the location is very convenient to access from railway station too. The area is surrounded with small residences though it is very near to some of the best malls in the city.

I visited to this temple on 5th April 15 along with my son Ajinkya. This is said an oldest temple of Lord Muruagn. There are seperate shrines of Shiva, Ganesh and Goddess Parvati. Next to this temple, there is an old temple of Perumal i.e. God Vishnu and Goddess Mahalaxmi. It is also worth to see.

Getting to see Lord Muruga popularly worshipped in six temples called 'aaru padai veedu' is the dream of every Hindu. Out of these six places, the most popular is in a place called 'Pazhani'. But people who cannot afford or find time to go there can seek the blessings equally from this city-based temple in Vadapalani. Built about 125 years... More
