About Valluvar Kottam, Chennai

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.

Valluvar Kottam, Chennai Reviews

  • I love this place.. Though it is in the heat of the city, it is peaceful and the pieces of heritage is awesome.. Watch out for the cozy lovers , finding spots here and there..but who cares, this place is worth the visit..bus connects are easy.. It has a huge hall which has exhibitions happening year round.. These exhibitions sell unique stuff from all over the country.. Around the place is a park quiet well maintained and you could do a brisk walk or sit around for good read..

  • It is in prime area ... A land mark for Chennai. Tourist can be easily attracted. But poorly maintained. Very sad situation. No clean toilets. No taps working in toilet. No white wash or periodic maintenance is done. Sad situation...

  • One of a Kind tourist attraction in Chennai. contains many well built statues and places of rest. Good place for photography. The place is surrounded with ample number of trees. The place is located in heart if the city. Nungambakkam. There is almost heavy traffic until evening. A good place to visit in the morning. but at nights, the place is not safe even for bystanders. Too many sex workers and miscreants lurking around the walls of this place and hence not advisable at the nights.

  • A nice and ambient place but lacks a proper seating facility and amenities like a good restroom. Lacks proper exposure to the facts about the great monument. It is mostly seen as a normal park.

  • Not sure whether this structure is really a tribute to the great poet. Well built structure is now almost in ruins. Projecting this as a tourist attraction is simply cheating. The chariot stands majestic but the writings on it are faded and not clearly visible. Pained to see the way this structure is being maintained.
