"Best temple"
reviewed on Jun 25 2014
It is a temple believed to be built during the Mahabharat wartime and the carvings on the temple walls and stones are simply magnificient. It is a big temple with two entrances and many gods in one place. It is also a famous temple in Chennai and one should visit it atleast once to admire the temple structures and carvings on the temple walls.
