The ancient Subramanyar temple at Vallakkottai
(Kodai Nagar) near Chingleput near Chennai is a well visited one. It has
been glorified by the Tiruppugazh hymns of Arunagirinathar
in the 15th century.
The sanctum here enshrines an imposing image of Subramanyar
with his consorts Valli and Deivayanai . Kartikai asterism each month is
of significance here. Skanda Sashti is celebrated in the
month of Aippasi and Kartikai Deepam in the month of Kartikai.
