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

  • One of the large and decent ayappan temple in Chennai. They provide Annam function to all kids

  • Hated the temple and the idiotic priests to the core who served the deities based on their status and prasadam is served only who give money(archanai) to them and others are opposed straight forward. Had a very worst experience visiting a temple after a long time.I considered myself very much humiliated and the presence of everyone surrounded by me.These kind of priests must be warned for their own stupid behavior.

  • Divine feel for those who cannot go to Kerala can get the replica holy darshan,Ayyappa Temple situated at Mahalingapuram, Chennai, resembles Kerala type temple Combination of Guruvayurappan,offers services to god is very punctual, there is a lot to learn from this temple, how they are maintaining this temple in very efficient and clean.

  • It is a kerala style temple... Easy access.. Safe place

  • Very Good place in Chennai And 2nd Sabarimala temple in nambha chennai....
