Vadapalani Murugan Temple : Situated in one of the city's busiest roads, it literally takes up the center of the city with connectivity to the area being rampant; trains, buses and autos, you'll find them all here. 'Murugan' who is more commonly known as 'Karthikeyan' is the second son of Lord Shiva. He is known as the lord of beauty and knowledge. The temple is pretty much crowded all the time so pick your favorite time to worship the lord and make your way to the temple. Be sure to purchase the 'panchamurtham' (a sweet dish containing cashews, dates and bananas).
