No information


Mallikatheeswarar Karumbakkam is about 11 kilometers on the road from Chingleput to Thirumukkoodal via Kavithandalam running on the south side of Paalar River. Take the immediate right after crossing the bridge and drive past Kavithandalam to reach Mallikatheeswarar Karumbakkam. Taking the right after Paalar river requires care as this is a very fast and blind stretch – or go further and take a u-turn to be safe. On the way to this temple are also quite a few temples in Chingleput Taluk in our listing.
