This temple's deity is Lord Muruga and resembles deity of Lord at Palani (one of the Six Padai Veedu of Lord Muruga /Subramaniya) Those who can not vist Plalani temple should visit this vadapalani Murugan temple (North Palani) and get the blessings of Lord Muruga.

This temple is among the few places in Chennai which a South Indian would love to go again and again. The feeling of being blessed will occur everytime you have a darshan of Lord Muruga.

The temple architecture is spectacular. It's one of the largest and most popular hindhu temples in Chennai. It's usually crowded during festival and also on auspicious days. There is also place to meditate, the place is calm and relaxing.

The temple is generally crowded, even on a weekday! but there is something special about the temple. If you are looking for a calm place to medidate, probably visit during mid day.
