Valluvar Kottam - Review

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

  • 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.

  • Constant offerings of exhibition and ample parking make this government extravaganza worth a visit. It is easy to access and give cool rest for a hot visitor. No major traditional value, yet offers one of beauty in rock works in Tiruvalluvar chariot. Ride the elephants when you are there and fun walking around.

  • I went to Valluvar Kottam Monument. Valluvar Kottam is known for its great architecture, built with innovative layouts and well-thought execution. In addition to being an important tourist destination in the city, Valluvar Kottam also plays host to some of the most important exhibitions and events in the city. It is great place to go.

  • 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..
