“For the religious”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

I have visited this temple numerous times due to religious reasons.This is a famous temple for god muruga and I have been here since the time I was a little boy. Of course there were Elephants and peacocks then, now they are not there. It's strange when I have to rate a place of worship, this is not a tourist attraction. If you are a Muruga devotee and in Chennai with very little time to go out of town to visit other Muruga temples, then you could visit Vadapalani !

“Excellent Tempe”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Muruganukku Arokara”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

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 divine blessings.

“One of the best Temples in the heart of the City Vadaplani Murugan Temple”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Vadaplani Murugan Temple is located in the heart of the city and it is one of the oldest temple in Chennai.

It is a must visit for the tourists and as well as the residents of chennai.

Devotees used to go to the Temple on all the days.

There are devotees who used to go to the Temple on every Tuesday for 6 weeks and get the blessings of Lord Murga.

Thai Poosam in Mid January of every year is a big festival here.

The temple as a Golden Ther and devotees used to pull the Ther with their hands and offer prayers to Lord Murga.

For sure your life will have all the shines, when you do your prayers at this Temple.
