I have visited this Ayyapa temple at Annangar Chennai. It is a Kerala style temple built in the metro city of Chennai.The temple becomes crowded during the Sabarimala season, starting from November15 to January 15 every year.

If going by town bus or without a guide, one has to reach Anna Nagar West and ask for Tower junction. From there we can enquire about the temple. Depending on from where and which bus you take, you can even get down just near the temple also. You can also go by taxi and auto to Anna Nagar West,Ayyappa Temple.

The Makara Vilakku festival falls on the first day of Malayalam calendar month 'Makaram' usually coinciding with January 14 or 15. It may also coincide with the Pongal festival for Tamil Nadu in most years.

It is a special festival at the Sabarimala Temple in Kerala, and hence celebrated as festival in all the Ayyappa temples across the world. Apart from the detailed traditional rituals there will be special rituals and functions and special decorations to the deity and in and around the temple. There may be other popular devotional and temple art performances.

So the Makara Vilakku festival evening will be a crowded but a worthy event to be present and participate at the Ayyappa Temple ,Anna Nagar West, Chennai, in Tamil Nadu, India.

Makaravilalku at the Lord Ayyappa Temple at Sabarimala is famous and attracts thousands of devotees to the temple just to witness this. It is a light appearing on the top of a hill behind the temple. No devotees are allowed to go to the originating place of this light. The time of this light appearing almost coincides with the time of evening light worshipping - Deepaaradhana.
