This is the city’s first Ayyappan temple, and thus of high significance. It was some forty-odd years ago, that it was realized Chennai did not have a temple, exclusively dedicated to Lord Ayyappa when the construction of this temple was initiated. The Ayyappan philosophy treads on the philosophy of brotherhood along with universal love, bringing people of the same beliefs together. It’s a brilliant alternative, if you can’t make it to the main temple in Kerala, albeit being just as blissful.

Swamy sarnam Every week I visit mahilangapuram temple ..divine place
Nice place, well maintained and located at the prime location at the heart of the city. Nearest railway station is Kodambakam railway station. Both the ideal statues are glittering.Pooja celebration with chendai melam is more popular event at this temple.
For the people who miss Kerala and the temples back home, this is the place to go to. Divine and serene atmosphere. Temple is run by Malayalis with Malayali priests and you can do all Puja like in any other Kerala temple.
The Divine comes naturally. I lost my memory, some minutes due to Lord Ayyappa power. It pass my body like current. All pupils those trust God, must visit this temple.
Very peaceful experience. Managed well
