The temple by itself and the architecture will certainly attract anyone interested in history. There is a lot of people coming here to offer their prayers and its worth a visit.

A densely populated neighbourhood of the city,
Vadapalani is an important junction for all local
travellers since one of the main bus terminals of
Chennai is located here.
Most popular for the city’s
prolific film studios and the Vadapalani Andavar
the busy streets here are a great spot to bump
