Located in Vadapalani. Parking is bit difficult in seasons. Entry, Dharshan, offerings, prasadams are excellent. Please visit in Season timings like Shasti, Karthiga..

Vadapalani Murugan Temple is a saint's gift to Chennai People who cannot travel up to Palani. He does penance to Murugan and asked to come to his place to bless him. Later it is named as Vadapalani. The god is very much power for believers...More

This temple is one of the post popular temples in Chennai. It is always crowded. Especially during the weekends. The temple is the Hub of Vadapalani. The temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan.

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
