You can see the peace within yourself once you enter this temple. Very cute idol of Lord Muruga and always the Saravana Bhavan in the proximity helps to complete a sumptuous dinner.

For devotees of lord Muruga, this temple is a must visit. Well maintained yet crowded... on muhurtam days multiple marriages take place here. Lord Muruga here looks beautiful and inspires full devotion.

Its a famous temple since ages and very good temple to visit. Especially some art shows will be performed during festivals. Shows like music, traditional dance etc will be worth to watch

God Vel Muruga is totally covered by the pujari's, who perform poojas. At any point of time more than 10 to 12 pujaries inside garbha-griha, objecting the God's view. Need to be addressed.

This temple is located near Vadapalani and slightly away from the central region. Its a beautiful place & there is huge rush in morning hours. Reaching temple may take time during peak traffic hours & so, its worth to visit in the afternoon.

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
