This temple is one of the post popular temples in Chennai. It is always crowded. Especially during the weekends. The temple is the Hub of Vadapalani. The temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan.

This temple has more undiyals (offering box/container) than the god/goddess. No sense of divinity or whatsoever, all the pandits are there just to earn money than that of their true reason. They should ideally come up with more eatery's and shops rather having shrines in...More
