State Highways Department rejects... Govt yet to decide on the design.A Trumpet interchange was proposed for this junction by TNRDC. The proposed interchange was supposed to start at the IT Expressway in front of Kasturba Nagar railway station and go parallel to MRTS line and then turn about while splitting into two joining the Sardar Patel Road. In March 2007, the Secretary to the Highways Department K. Allaudin, clarified that this proposal had been rejected by the State Government - as it felt land acquisition would be a problem and the facility could possibly be a disturbance to educational institutions nearby. The Indian Institute of Technology, Anna University and the State Highways department engineers had presented three different and independent project proposals for easing traffic congestion. As of December 2007, the corporation and Govt were yet to finalise the design and alignment of the flyover.Make Madhya Kailash Temple part of your personalized Chennai itinerary using our Chennai trip planner.

Located right at the OMR Sardar Patel Road junction, this small but elegant temple is possibly around 30 years old. With so much of traffic and noise in the junction, it is surprising that there is no... more »
Nostalgic place.. brings back old memories whenever I cross this beautiful temple.. even more beautiful was the huge tree adjacent to the temple premises-which used to be an icon for so many years.. pity, it was cut down as there was no sign of life in it.. however the temple offers its deities the peace of mind they are searching for and it will continue to be one of the famous cultural landmarks of Chennai city!
Centrally located and easily accessible from bus stop and by car. Road side parking is available. Slippers have to be kept near the temple entrance and there is nobody to take care. New pairs will get lost very easily and you can never spot anyone to question particularly at night times.
