Important pilgrimage spot in chennai. it is supposed to be the famous southern palani temple's representation in the northern tamilnadu part. many festivals happen here, always crowded, but you can have darshan pretty fast. parking for cars is difficult

Had a very satisfactory darshan of Lord Muruga. The temple is very well maintained by the trustees and very serene surroundings. We were lucky to hear Dr. Siva Chidambarams rendering of the devotional songs in person. The archanai is performed in the prahara without any disturbance to other devotees. We had a very hearty darshan and came fulfilled.
