Situated close to the Taramani turn-off in Adyar, Madhya Kailash is a pleasant white structure that strikes the eyes immediately. Known all over the region for its distinctive architectural features and style, this temple in Tamil Nadu is constructed along the lines of the cult of Ganapatyam—which is among the five cults propagated by Adi Shankara. This beautiful complex is presided by its chief deity—Venkata Ananda Vinayakar. The other shrines in Madhya Kailash belong to Lord Vishnu, Lord Siva, Lord Surya and Goddesss Devi.
The tranquil precincts of this beautiful temple are best visited on the day of Vinayaka Chaturth—when sun rays fall directly on the idol of the presiding deity and create an ambience beyond compare. This auspicious occasion is visited by pilgrims from all over the world. There are seven large bells in the vicinity of this beautiful temple which represent the seven musical notes. Visitors cannot miss the eight bells, representing the seven notes-- Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Da, Ni, Sa.
Madhya Kailash is also visited for its exceptional idol of "Adhyantha Prabhu"—which is basically a dual statue of Anjaneya and Ganapathy. The right side of this unique statue is that of Lord Ganesha while the left belongs to Hanuman. People belonging to all communities and castes come here to offer their prayers and seek the blessings of the divine.
