How to reach

Travelling on the Bangalore-Chennai highway, cut the bypass to reach Sunguvar chatram junction and take the left (coming from chennai) or right (while coming from Bangalore) towards Walajabad just opposite the Ganesha temple in the junction. Keep moving on the road till you reach Kattavakkam which is about 13.5 kms. The temple is a few mtrs away on the left side and can be seen from the road itself. For devotees from Chengelpet, the route from Chengelpet to Kanchipuram would be shorter.
