This temple is dedicated for Lord Murugan. Temple is built on a small hill which is in Chromepet. Temple has peaceful environment and is less crowded usually. On auspicious days for Lord Murugan, it may be little over crowded. Not sure whether frequent public transport is available to this place, better to hire a cab.

This temple is situated on a small hillock near Hastinapuram. You can reach the temple from Chromepet using the mini-bus which goes to Sembakkam (I think bus number is S2 or S4) The temple is dedicated to Hindu god Lord Muruga. You might have to take a flight of stairs about 90 in number. It is not stressful at all.... More

Vehicles are not accessible to reach the temple on the small hill. We need to climb the steps (approx 100 steps). The temple is clean and cool. We can feel a good vibration being inside the temple. Suitable for a weekend evening outing with family.

Its a new restaurant servng authentic chettinad and madurai dishes in Vadalapani. Althout the place is neat clean and the service good...the rates were too high for that atmosphere . sow as the quantity less for that price. But the food was awesome. Worth trying once.

It is difficult to find a shrine like this in city. You have to climb steps to get the dharsan. It is worth doing that as you get to see the surroundings and get a good breeze. It is a nice different than other shrines in Chennai.

Kumaran Kundram is located at a distance of 1 km from the Chrompet railway station and is easily accessible. The temple is around 40-years old and dedicated to Lord Murugan. You need to visit this temple during your Chennai visits – very calm and serene temple to offer your prayers to the almighty.

Very nice place for the quiet and soothing environment. Number of steps to climb the mountain are a lot though.

This little hill temple has been my favorite from my school time and its ten minutes away from our house. It gives me peace of mind when ever I climb this hill with my mates or uni friends. A lot of cultural and ritual activities happening all round the year. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who fancy little peace... More
