The vadapalani murgan temple is one of the most iconic temples within the city after the mylapore shiv temple. The temple is visible right from the main road and attracts a lot of devotees. tonsuring is also very popular in this temple and is believed to be very auspicious.

The lord Muruga is the presiding deity at this temple and bless his devotees with his kindness. Those who come with a disturbed mind will surely find solace as soon as they see the Lord and have experienced His benevolence in abundance,

One of the famous temples dedicated to Lord Muruga or Karthikeya. It is located near Vadapalani bus stand and also very close to Vadapalani Metro Station.

All Muruga bath should visit this beutiful temple in chennai. The Lord is smiling benevolently at all his baths. But one thing is it is always crowded. Crowd is unmanageable during mukurat days.. Simultaneously 6 , 7 marriages take place here.

In the heart of city known for famous kolywood cinema area. The temple is very old and you will feel the satisfaction while doing prayer. Better to visit on working days,as holidays will be crowded. Parking is no problem

Loved the energy. Was able to experience a holy daily ritual and feel the love of the people. I would recommend anyone to experience any of the holy grounds. Must wear no shoes, and make sure to wear pants and shoulder-covering shirts. No tank tops
