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.

One of the oldest temples in Chennai. And one of the best too. Clean and well maintained. Beware of the crazy traffic in Vadapalani though. Finding a parking space might be a task.

be there to see the abishekam performed with various natural materials like sandal paste, oil, honey, etc... Do not miss to the beautifully dressed up God as a king with turban and silk clothes. Definitely, you feel the soul in your body to observe the beaurtiful sandal-covere face of the Lord.

It was a early auspicious day of June 8th 2014, a muhurtham day. The main deity Lord Murugan was decorated in the sanctum sanctorum and it was mesmerizing. I was lucky to witness the car procession. The temple was fully occupied by newly wedded couples and their guests Some more cleanliness will help devotees to spend more time to get... More
