  • The temple is maintained beautifully. The place has its divine charm and devotional prayers and chanting mantras. Ugly side is it still has the buggers inside the temple premises and it's surroundings making the Saravan as unsatisfied one. Lovers and just time passers are occupying the hall and converting it as lovers park. Temple management is not doing a bit to curb these.

  • Best temple in Chennai. Lot people will come and pray in the temple. All kirithigai function all celebrate very well. Must visit temple in Chennai. Center of the city easy access from all locations.

  • A very divine experience. A must visit temple in Chennai. A well maintained temple complex. A very popular God. The temple is generally crowded. Morning hours are the best. The temple is well connected, you can take metro to reach temple. Parking facilities available. However the temple complex is not disabled friendly or wheelchair friendly.
