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.

It is well organized and they handle the rush very well. People are polite despite handling large number of folks everyday. I had been there twice and you pass through multiple checkpoints before getting to final counter for biometric. 1. Show up on time at the entrance. Keep the appointment confirmation letter that you need to show to security personnel and they will let you in. You literally do not need anything apart from DS160 confirmation page, passport, and appointment letter. 2. Keep your DS160 and current passport together (just keep the ds160 folded in your passport) - Thats your first checkpoint. If you’re with family let each member carry their own ds160 with passport. Primary applicant can carry the appointment confirmation letter. 3. You walk another level up and queue up, here they would ask for switching off the cell. Keep it light, only cell and wallet is allowed. Only required document is your passport, DS160 and appointment letter - can’t stress enough. 4. They will call you for security scan and to another checkpoint where they will verify your DS160 confirmation page and passport for correctness. Letter by letter. 5. Next checkpoint is where they give you a token with your number in the queue, and add a barcode at the back of your passport. 6. Wait for your turn. Keep track of your turn on monitors. They will call your number and thats your cue to show up at the counter listed against your token in the monitor. 7. Hand over DS160, passport and the token. They will take a photo and fingerprints. Ask simple questions for verification and boom you are done. If you have carried any bag, security at entrance will let you know to keep it safe somewhere. There is small shop inside the center where you can keep your bag for hefty fee. So just avoid the bag altogether. If you are with baby, they give you priority and you will front of the queue at all checkpoints, so you will be out in no time, so skip the baby bag any food or water/milk bottle. Take first appointment if your baby is too small, so that you are out in first 15 minutes, I had a 8:00am appointment with my wife and 18 mo. We were out in 15-20 minute. I was the first one and my wife was third in line to get the biometric. If you have any mistakes in your form, it will be uncovered at #4 and for ramifications they will suggest options. You can get it done on ground level shop again at an hefty price and by shouting your way amid the angry folks. There is no sense of courtesy or humanity at this shop. So just bear with it.
Calm and quiet place in the town. Needs maintenance from the government. It became place for lovers to enjoy themselves in lonely manner. This can be a great tourist attraction but now only place for organizing meetings and conferences. The park, main auditorium and surrounding areas need regular cleaning and watering. Government officials please take some actions and make this heritage as a tourist attraction.
