  • Must visit to see the grandeur of the temple. It was good to read the history mentioned at the temple entrance. Ideal to get there early morning as there is very less parking and the entry roads are very narrow

  • Complete spiritual place with a main god kapaleeshwar n worth seeing many times amazing architecture n cats n cows are highlighting features

  • Mylapore is the hub of all gods, be it for Saiva, Vainava, Jains, Christians or Muslims. Place that is always buzzing and happening.

  • Such a peaceful temple ! Must visit ! Amazing architecture

  • The main attraction what I found is the dome of the temple which is very good. There are lots of small temple inside the premises apart from the few inner sanctus. The inner sanctum is small, so one might need to get in line. It is situated in at very congested place so would need to face traffic.
