He mentioned to the Acharya regarding having a single temple complex for all the six Padai Veedu temples of Lord Muruga at one place and that too in granite. The sage readily agreed... More

Located at Besant Nagar,Aarupadai Veedu temple attracts a lot of people from across the globe.While lord Murugan is the famed lord in tamil nadu but you rarely find all the six avatars of Lord Murugan under one roof.This rare form can be found at Aarupadai Veedu temple.

This is one of the superb temples in Chennai and a must visit. Located deep inside Besant Nagar in a calm area, ( came to know too late about this) the temple has 6 idols which is presented in the form as like the way Lord Muruga is worshipped in his 6 Abodes (Tiruchendur, PazhamudhirCholai, Tiruparunkundram, Pazhani, Swami Malai &...

This temple has made murugan bhakthas to have darshan of all the six holy destinations of Lord Muruga in one place. But the surroundings need care.Neither the cleanliness nor hygene is maintained near the temple.But as the Lord smiles you forget all these aspects and start reciting the vetri vel muruganukku arohara gosham.The temple is a reasonably good place to...

In Hindu convention, there is a belief that Lord Murugan, Son of Lord Shiva has six avatars and six places have been chosen by Him like Thirutani, Palani, Pazhamudir Solai near Madurai, Thiruchendur - all places within Tamilnadu, India. For busy people and for those who cannot afford to travel to all the six places to have a Darshan of... More

Located on the beach side in Besant Nagar. Public transport not well-connected to this place, so you have to take an auto from Besant Nagar Velankanni Church/ Ashtalakshmi Temple. The temple is well-maintained and peaceful.

The temple situated near the beach has a soothing majestic presence. It has all the 6 Padai veedu of Lord Muruga in the posture enunciated there. When we were there there was lot of flooring / construction work going on. I hope once it is over the temple will present a much better look. The temple opens in the evening... More

We had visited this small temple complex dedicated to Lord Murugan during our sightseeing in Chennai. This place is located close to Eliot beach in Besant Nagar and also at a walking distance from Astalakshmi temple. We found that part of the temple complex was undergoing restoration but it was a nice divine experience to see 6 different forms of... More
