All reviews elephant named golden chariot various forms main deity must visit place walkable distance the heart of the city worth a visit white town french colony french quarter promenade beach nice place blessings elephants lord darshan
a traditional hindu temple dedicated to Ganapati when you can receive the blessing of an elephant in the end of the afternoon, and folow the devotees during the offering ceremony, great and full of fervor.
Apparently this temple survived the attempt of the Governor to get rid ofit from the White Town as result of its role in curing him and turning him into a follower of Ganesh. Interesting decorative and ornate interior.

The temple is walkable distance from Aurobindo Ashram. We visited the temple after visiting Aurobindo Ashram. The temple is well kept. There is also an Adyar Anand Bhavan for families to have food after visiting the temple.
The temple has mostly over hundred depictions of Vinayagr on the temple wall. I was mesmerised to see.

There are ample kiosks outside if you want...More

The temple would open around 5:30 AM and closes at 12 noon. In the evening, it opens around 4 PM and would close by 9:30 PM. These are regular timings of all South Indian temples. Though evenings are preferred, there can be some crowd at that time. But, you can get some prasad also (pongal, curd rice) in the evening.
