Samayapuram Vs Mangadu
This is a kind of similar comparison we had sometime back between Katpadi and Camp Road. The atmosphere and the geographical entrance position of Mangadu from the Poonamalee Highway took my memories somewhat straight to Samayapuram near Thiruchi.
To reach Samayapuram, I remember there is a junction called Toll Gate where you also see the entrance arch of Samayapuram Mariamman temple. After entering it, you need to drive for a couple of minutes to reach the temple premises, look out for a parking area for your vehicle and then join the queue.
Similarly, from the Poonamalee Express Way (NH4), you need to turn left at Kumananchavadi. And then drive for a couple of minutes to reach the Mangadu Kamakshi Amman temple. Both the temples are very ancient temples and are well served by a good frequency of buses. You can schedule your calendar for a convenient time to visit the temples to get the blessings of the Lordess.
