Clean and well run temple
Okt. 2020
The temple has both Ayyappaswamy and Guruvayurappan as the main deities. Had excellent darshan. All daily poojas, including the Ganapathi homam are performed daily. Not crowded (probably because of Covid 19) and devotees are checked for temperature, hands sanitised. Wearing a mask is compulsory. The entire temple and its surroundings are clean and tidy. All rituals are performed as per malayalee tradition by priests from Kerala.

Holy temple
Sep. 2019
This holy temple is a great sight for anyone who believes in Lord Ayyappa. We drove to this temple after shopping for clothes in Madras mall. The temple is spacious and clean. The priest was talking to us gently and was happy to see us tourists in India. We were glad.

A kerala style temple in heart of chennai.
This temple has guruvayur appan and lord ayyapan , the services are all done in kerala style and its very beautiful to watch. The place is pretty crowded and lacks parking spaces as it is in middle of a residential area.

This is a popular temple where people congregate to pray to their favourite deities, Ayyappan and Guruvayurappan. My interaction with this temple started around 38 years back. Those days there was only Ayyappan and a few other "Upa daivangal" consecrated. The temple has not grown in size physically, but has grown in stature and divinity over these many years.

A REVIEW OF MY NEIGHBOURHOOD AYYAPAN TEMPLE IN MAHALINGAPURAM , CHENNAI
Aug. 2019 • Paare
I present this review with devotion & pride about my neighbourhood Mahalingapuram Ayyappan temple .

This is a land mark temple for Lord Ayyappa although, there are now temples dedicated to him in Anna Nagar ,R A puram and Nanganallur in chennai .

In the late 60's and early 70's , there were no temple in Chennai Metropolis dedicated exclusively to Lord Ayyappa.

Over generations devotees to be estimated anywhere between 20 to 50 million each year , specially keralites , settled all over India and abroad undertake an annual pilgrimage to the Main Ayyapa temple in Sabarimala , situated on a hilltop amidst eighteen hills at an altitude of 480 m above sea level, surrounded by mountains and dense forests called Periyar Tiger hills reserve, in pathanthitta district of KeralaState , South of India.The famous festival is Makara Villakku festival .

This main temple is dedicated to the hindu celibate diety, Lord  Ayyappan also known as Dharma Sastha.

According to hindu mythology he is
the son of Lord Shiva and Mohini ,the feminine incarnation of Lord Vishnu

Its a rare temple due to the fact that the traditions of this Sabarimala temple is a confluence of Shaivism, Shakthism
& Vaishnavism with other Sramana traditions .

People before undertaking this pilgrimage, normally go through a period of strict penance and prayers meetings for 41 days abd start the pulgrimage with an Irumudi or offering to the lord carried on their head wearing black clothes .During this period of prayers they maintain strict abstinance from non veg food & alcohol.Devotees undertaking this pilgrimage to Sabarimala Mandalam- Makaravilakku seasons in Chennai had to fend for themselves in the absence of any institutionalized service in chennai in those days of 60's & 70's .

These Ayyappan Vilakku rituals, associated with this pilgrimage used to be conducted in several areas of the city as an annual feature and homes of devotees themselves and in our neighbourhood it used to be conducted in the premises of a small temple on Melpadi Muthu Naicken Street or in the precincts of Asalathamman Koil, on North Mada Street in Nungambakkam
Of which Mahalingapuram forms a part.

In 1967 a few organizers, realising the need to have an institution to overcome the problems encountered by the devotees undertaking pilgrimage to this Holy Hills, decided to provide minimum facilities to them. Notable among them being Sarvasri P.B.Nair, R.S.Kaimal, K.V.Thankappan Nair, K.Bhaskaran, C.P.G.Nambiar, T.M.G.Kurup, V.S.Mani Iyer.

Formation of a trust by them led to the
realisation of the Mahalingapuram Bhaktha Samajam & the famous Ayyappan Temple built in traditional kerala style architecture , as you see today standing tall.

Now the temple also has sannadhis for Guruvayur krishnan ,Ganapathy, shiva & Parvathi , Murugan with his consorts Valli & Devasenai and Lordess Saraswathi.

This temple is known for its very good upkeep & maintenance following strictly the rituals to specified in our Vedas and scriptures & while maintaining perfect Timings forcall poojas and visting hours . Annual poojas notable among them being the Vallakku pooja every year around Karthigai month Iis noteworthy .

Traditionally this begins in the late evening , from the Shiva temple nearby on the main Road with ladies standing in two rows carrying a lamp & begin a procession in front of Lord Ayyappa riding a chariot accompanied by famous and loud Ketala Chanda music
And fire works and it ends at the Ayyppa temple .

I strongly reccommend visitors to Chennai to look up this temple during their next visit to Chennai .

We've visited this temple multiple times. The temple is for Guruvayur appan and swami ayyapan. The temple is built in Kerala's architecture. Hats off to temple's admins who've installed cell phone jamers inside the temple.
