Sri Murugan Temple at Vadapalani is often crowded during weekends, muhurthams and festivals. It's not a old structure. Worth a visit.

Lord Murugan Temple of 17th Century is in the centre of Chennai city. Really beautiful and ornate temple. The priests took good care of us and performed all the pooja rituals we requested, Reveived the prasadam and relaxed a few minutes and felt at peace at this temple.

People who do not get a chance to go to Palani from Chennai and neighbouring places, considering the distance, always go to Vadapalani due to the easy access to the temple. The queue is well organised and the darshan is quite peaceful. My overall experience and staisfaction was outstanding. Darshan of Lord Muruga was blissful.
