Vadapalani is one among the 6 temples in Arupadai vidu - Means one among 6 houses of Lord Murugan! Located in a crowded Area. Been there on July for a Marriage. Many Marriages will be held in that temple. The temple is neatly maintained. Good Air flow and the pathways are clean. Points to Note: 1) Car can be parked... More

The temple is good but lot of crowd will be there and to reach this temple you have travel in very thick traffic. So to avoid the crowd and traffic plan to have darshan in the morning and leave the temple by 9 to avoid stuck in the traffic.

Vadapalani Murugan temple situated in a crowded part of the city but still retains calm and serenity. The temple is neatly maintained and has elevated platform for the free darshan devotees to have darshan of the Lord without hindrance.Have enough space for the devotees to sit and enjoy the visit.

I have been visiting this temple from around year 2000, but not very frequently. The temple infrastructure itself has undergone a makeover about 5 years back and it has been maintained well. Parking cars is a problem since there are no earmarked area for the temple itself and the roads around the temple are very narrow.
