For quite long, I have been contemplating to visit this temple but accessing through the traffic prone Arcot road and Koyambedu road route was a mind blocker. Now we have this metro, I took a train from Nehru park (I stay nearby) and got down...More

The place is really holy along with a touch of Dravidian architecture ....Highly well maintained and cultural for all the Murugan devotees to visit.

Really not worth the visit between the pushover guards, priests and lack of maintenance. No lights, paintings running down... The place is ugly really. There is even an ATM inside... Quite dirty too. Go to the Kapaleeshwarar temple nearby instead. Less hostility, more beauty.
