    humble request to stick to temples in and around chennai not outside chennai. The idea is to visit the temples on a weekend. There are temples like siruvapuri murugan temple near redhills which may also require 1.5hrs travel but are nearer to chennai. Any temple that requires 2 to 3hrs travel one way and are beyond chennai like thiruthani, thiruvanamalai can be enlisted in a separate thread.
    thank you again
