Ayappa Temple - Review

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

  • 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.

  • Divine and good darshan of Guruvayoorappan. Anna prasnam and tulabaram can be done here for kids.

  • Very big temple. Nice and peaceful place. And god in one place.

  • Partiality is shown by that organized people, in Pooja time they send outside of sanathi, after that later they saying reason for that is we all not in formal pants shirts (Dhoties need to wear).

  • 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
