When you proceed on SH 205 from Padi towards ambattur after crossing Ambattur OT at about 14 kms from padi fly over you will enter  Thirumullaivoyal. Right on the highway you can see the police station and next to this you can see the arch of the temple leading into a serene temple situated in lush 50 acres of private land. The temple is run by volunteers and you have the privilege of doing pooja archanai or abhishekam yourself  all under guidance by the volunteer devotees!

Sri Parthasarathy, the son of Srinivasa Iyengar, a famous Indian national leader, got the idol of Vaishnavi Devi as a gift from some unknown person maybe a siddhar. He built this temple of Vaishnavi Devi in 1954. The main idol of the temple Vaishnavi Devi is extraordinarily beautiful

The serene atmosphere in the midst of the Industries will definitely enchant you.
