Sri Subramanya Swami Temple is situated on Old Mahabalipuram Road in Sholinganallur, 13 kms south of Adyar (Chennai) adjoining a cool green environment spread over an area of 100 acres of farmland with scenic beauty and aesthetic value that has already attracted people from far and wide.
The temple has been blessed by the participation of the revered Sri Sankaracharyas of Kanchi Mutt and other Hindu religious figures of various mutts of Tamil Nadu.
The pradhana devata of the temple is Sri Valli Devasena Samedha Subramanya Swami. Other deities having their own separate shrines at the complex include:
- Sri Selva Vinayakar
- Sri Maha Vishnu
- Sri Vana Durga
- Sri Sapta Mata (Seven Mother Goddesses)
- Sri Anjaneyar (Hanuman)
- Sri Mahalakshmi
The kumbhabhishekam of Sri Selva Vinayakar Sannidhi took place in July 1998 and since then Lord Vinayakar has been blessing His devout devotees.
The temple interiors are excellently landscaped and a beautiful nandavanam is being developed. When one enters the temple, one feels the divine presence of the Lord.
The Ashtabandhana Mahakumbhabhishekam of Sri Subramanya Swami Temple took place on 24th January 1999 on a grand scale with many religious dignitaries in attendance. The temple was developed on the request of the people of Sholinganallur and adjoining areas. The entire temple complex was constructed at a cost of about Rs 45 lakhs (US$100,000), and all this has been possible due to the untiring and dedicated efforts of the Clasic Group, who have funded the entire project.
May the Lord Subramanya in His infinite mercy ensure that His devotees remain ever protected under His blissful umbrella and be blessed for all noble and generous deeds.
