Navagraha temples around Chennai Porur Kunrathur - a Quick reference

 

The Navagraha temples are all situated close to Porur Kunrathur road. It is possible to cover them all in half  a day. The temples open by 7 AM and close by 12 noon . Evening  they are open between 4 to 7 PM. It would be best to start with the  Mangadu Sivan koil first  finish the Poonamallee Vaidyswaran koil and then proceed to Ramanatheshwara koil and then proceed  in two ways.Either you can complete Kovoor, Kunrathur Somamangalam in one direction and return back to Kovoor then proceed to Gerugambakkam , kolapakkam and Pozhichallur or go vice versa from kovoor to Gerugambaakkam etc and return to kovvor to proceed to kunrathur and somamangalam. The road between Gerugambakkam and Pozhichallur will test your spine as it crossed the Adayar river causeway . Similarly the road to Somamangalam from Kunrathur skirts the Chembarambakkam tank Parrallel to the Bangalore highway and in rainy season will be inundated and slushy.

Happy Temple hopping!
