  • This monument is dedicated to the Tamil poet and philosopher Tiruvalluvaru. The impressive main monument complex, built in the form of the chariot of the temple. Everything is beautiful, colorful and unusual.

  • Beautiful. Very pretty chariot. Good to visit a place where the Thirukkural script is seen in public - something that I learnt as a child. Worth a visit. Try and avoid a very hot and sunny day! 
  • Worth visiting once, to view the huge 'Ratham' in the campus. The campus hosts fairs and exhibitions throughout the year, for textiles and handicrafts from all over India, which is usually good. 
  • Superb and awesome park and its reflect the tamil poet dedication to tamil and world
  • Well structured monument for Thiruvallur , but they are maintaining it as usual like other places. They should spend some money to maintain it if it Please use that money for the other useful services instead of building some monuments and wasting the people money.
  • Valluvar Kottam is the one of the Tourism center in chennai, it's a land mark of chennai (Tamil: வள்ளுவர் கோட்டம்) is a popular monument in Chennai, India which is dedicated to the classical Tamil poet, philosopher and saint Thiruvalluvar. Valluvar Kottam is located at the intersection of the Kodambakkam High road and the Village road. Valluvar Kottam now stands at the point which was the deepest point of a lake which was located in the area. The monument was constructed in 1976 in the memory of Thiruvalluvar, who wrote his famous Thirukkural about 2,000 years ago. All the 133 chapters of the Thirukkural which include 1330 verses are inscribed on bas-relief in the front hall corridors. The construction of Valluvar Kottam is like a temple chariot, and it is a replica of the temple chariot in Thiruvarur. A life-size statue of the Thiruvalluvar has been installed in the 39-m-high chariot. The auditorium of Valluvar Kottam can accommodate around 4,000 people. The architect of the memorial is South Indian traditional architect V. Ganapati Sthapati, who is also the architect of the Thiruvalluvar Statue at Kanyakumari. Incidentally, the original Tiruvarur chariot was burnt in 1922 in an accident caused by Justice Party members during the anti-Brahmin agitation under EV Ramasamy Naiker. This version of events is highly disputed and suspected to be propaganda from Right wing Hindutva elements.
  • Actually a place of interest.. But the maintenance is so bad.. U cant step into d washroom.. Now its a place fr so many exhibitions.. Dats a nice thing.. Still the place can be renovated nd promoted in so many ways..
  • Thiru Valluvaur kurals all of them is carved in here so great to see it
