“Swami Malai Mandir is awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2012

Beautiful temple and very well done pumas. Pujaris are very dedicated and chant mantras very clearly. The pumas are done similar to any temple in Tamil Nadu. The Sura Samhara festival which happens some time after Diwali is awesome.

“Malai Mandir is a famous south Delhi temple”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

This temple is one of the largest in South Delhi. Maintenance is not up to the mark. At places, it is quite slippery. Non believer can skip it.
