Valluvar kottam

Besides the big chariot, which is the main attraction, there is nothing to see. The garden is good but the surroundings are not well maintained. Just a 15-20 mins time pass..

Its a tribute to great ancient poet thiruvalluvar, huge chariot and a garden inside it, need to go terrace to see it completely. Mostly used to conduct some protests, by couples for privacy and some exhibition sales will happen.

This place has now become a home for a variety of exhibitions. There is a huge lovely stone chariot which is the main attraction but that has now been overtaken by the exhibitions held there. There are no activities or any guided tour here. If you are lucky you will end up doing a lot of shopping.

Beautiful. Very pretty chariot. Good to visit a place where the Thirukkural script is seen in public - something that I learnt as a child. Worth a visit. Try and avoid a very hot and sunny day!

Worth visiting once, to view the huge 'Ratham' in the campus. The campus hosts fairs and exhibitions throughout the year, for textiles and handicrafts from all over India, which is usually good.

Very very good and excellent. We should visit at least once in our life.Such a beautiful monument in Chennai. My children and family enjoyed very much and wondered very nice. In the ancient days they have done a wonderful job. The carvings are very excited and beautiful.

No maintenance at all.. Often some exhibitions are being run here.. There's nothing here to see or enjoy, its just a landmark.
