Valluvar Kottam


Valluvar Kottam is an auditorium, with a capacity to hold 4,000 people, built in remembrance of the poet-saint Tiruvalluvar, located in Chennai. Verses of the poet Tiruvalluvar are emblazoned on the pillars around the auditorium and a major draw here is the 101-feet high temple chariot structure, which attracts many tourists. The shape and structure of the building is similar to a temple chariot. Thoughtful lines from the epic Thirukkural have been written in bas-relief in the front lobby corridors of the chariot. This auditorium and the Chariot structure are the living symbols of cultural, societal and artistic heritage of Tamilnadu.
