As something that is close to home for me, this place has always been somewhere we like to visit on special days. Though it is crowded on festive days, it is quieter on normal days and is a good place to visit

Vadapalani Andavar Temple is a Hindu temple that is dedicated to Lord Muruga/Subramaniyaswamy. The temple is easy to access by road...public transportation available! From main CMBT it is in reach within 10 minutes. Temple is neatly maintained.
