About Ayappa Temple, Chennai

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.

Ayappa Temple, Chennai Reviews

  • Iam back in Chennai after 4 years. Had visited the temple couple of days back. The energy is amazing. The best part is that they have maintained the place this way over the past 20 years that I know off. Great place and wonderful darshan

  • Those who can't go to Sabarimala can come and visit lord ayyappa at his temple. The only problem is parking. Kerala style traditional Pooja.
