This Chennai attraction with its striking feature is dedicated to the popular classical Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar. This is where he wrote the Tamil sangam literature, some 2000-odd years ago. The main part of the monument, resembling a temple chariot is erected at the point that was once the deepest of the lake. It holds resemblance and high significant association with the Thiruvarur temple chariot. On some days, the place is a venue for several exhibitions and events. Best to skip on a hot sunny day, but an ideal evening location.
