This place has now become a home for a variety of exhibitions. There is a huge lovely stone chariot which is the main attraction but that has now been overtaken by the exhibitions held there. There are no activities or any guided tour here. If you are lucky you will end up doing a lot of shopping.

Beautiful. Very pretty chariot. Good to visit a place where the Thirukkural script is seen in public - something that I learnt as a child. Worth a visit. Try and avoid a very hot and sunny day!

Worth visiting once, to view the huge 'Ratham' in the campus. The campus hosts fairs and exhibitions throughout the year, for textiles and handicrafts from all over India, which is usually good.

Very very good and excellent. We should visit at least once in our life.Such a beautiful monument in Chennai. My children and family enjoyed very much and wondered very nice. In the ancient days they have done a wonderful job. The carvings are very excited and beautiful.

No maintenance at all.. Often some exhibitions are being run here.. There's nothing here to see or enjoy, its just a landmark.

The Chariot and the valluvar statue on the roof are good & would be pleasant experience during evening. The lawn maintained by Indian Bank is also neat and clean. The structure needs some coloring and some repairing being in the centre of city.

We had visited this beautiful monument created in the memory of ancient Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar during our sightseeing in Chennai. We liked the articulately carved huge stone chariot like structure with imposing statue of the poet and clicked pics with the monument in the background. Small garden around the monument needs better maintainence. We also visited the arts & crafts... More

Valluvar Kottam is a 30 year old monument built in the memory of great poet, philosopher, Thiruvalluvar. It has a huge hall with illustrated kurals (poems). There is also a majestic ratha made up of stone surrounded by a park. Nothing much. One may need hardly 20 minutes to go around this place.
