The Subramanyar temple at Kumaran Kunram in Chromepet (near Chennai, Tambaram)  is of recent origin and is a well visited one.


It is situated on a hill accessed through a flight of granite steps. At the foot of the hill are shrines to Vinayakar and the Navagrahams. Halfway up the hill, are shrines to Meenakshi and Sundareswarar. The Sundareswarar shrine is crowned with a Gajaprishta vimaanam, keeping up with the style of the vimanams in the Tondai kingdom.

The Subramanyar shrine is located on top of the hill and is visible over a distance and commands an impressive view of the surroundings. The Kartikai deepam festival when the temple is illuminated with a number of lamps rendering it visible all around, is of great beauty.is data about the temple
