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

You get good ambience in Chennai with the blessings from Lord Murugan. Though the parking place is little cramped

I visited the temple on May 1,2014 for tonsuring my head for a vow. We were there at 8 am and I had to wait in queue. You have to buy 10 rs ticket at the entrance. The tonsuring place is on the side of the temple. I completed the tonsuring at 0915hrs. The bathing places were clean. After that... More

One among the many temples located in Chennai. Weekends will be much crowded. So take preventive measures to face the crowd if you want to worship Lord Murugan(Saravanan). Also the temple is located near Vadapalani. The Vadapalani signal is one place where vehicular traffic is extremely bad. So be cautious

I have been visiting this temple since 1960s when it was under reconstruction. After its completion it gives a divine look. Lord Muruga dwells in six abodes in Tamil Nadu nmely Thiraparankundram, Thiruchendur, Swami Malai, Pazam udirchole, Pazani and Thiruthani (now in Andhra Pradesh). Vada Palani is the replica of Lord Muruga of Pazani, which is of an international fame.... More

This famous temple, is amazingly small for a South Indian temple. But, at the same time you will be able to see The Lords family of his father Shiva, brother Ganesha etc. You will also find, lot of Sostra's (poems) in praise of The Lord, mounted on the walls around the temple. Even though it is crowded, you can prey... More
