Owner description: Although this temple was built in the 7th century and rebuilt in the 14th, it's not very historical.

All the areas are well maintained, nicely painted and is one of the most crowded temple in Kanchipuram. If on non regular day one need to have some approach to directly enter the line near main shrine or it will take you half day. And temple closes between 12.30 PM TO 3.30 PM. Here Goddess is in YOGIC pose.

One of the best shrine location in Chennai,in western part of chennai.
You can visit any day,as temple is good for offering prayers.
Do not forget to to tank(pond) at the rear entrance..(Buy some items outside to feed fish/goat etc.
Also do not miss nearby Karumari amman temple in Thiruverkadu
