This temple is in vadapalani, a bustling place. The temple has become very crowded in recent days and will be extremely crowded during festival days. You can have a good experience here. This temple is not an old and was built only few years back. Never forget to eat in Saravana Bhavan when you visit Vadapalani Murugan temple :)

A very good temple to visit in Chennai. Those who travel to Tamilnadu and could not go to Palani in the southern part of tamilnadu could visit this temple to get the similar benefits in terms of blessings from Lord Muruga.
