The Vallakottai Subramaniyaswami temple is very famous in Vallakottai. The Temple was recently renovated. People from various places visit this temple during festival days. Frequent bus facility is available to the village from Tambaram and Sriperumbudur. The Subramaniya Swamy idol in this temple is the tallest Lord Muruga statue in India.

Small temple, but the statue in garba griha is pretty big. Take the 50rs dharshan if you are going with small kids. I expected it to be a crowd free but was surprised to see such a large crowd. No decent restaurant / restroom available in the near visibility. Bring you food and drive to Vandalur / Sriperambadur for food.

The tomb had numerous number of Gods craved into it which is very attractive. i loved the chanting played here as they do it in ethinic fashion and many people visit here due to the beautiful chating played here. Very nice and attractive place. Very peaceful and calm
