Babaji Temple, Malaipattu, Kanchipuram

Babaji Temple, Malaipattu, Kanchipuram
The Babaji Temple is located in Malaipattu, Chennai suburb. Malaipattu is on the Tambaram - Sriperumpudur route which goes via Manimangalam. Malaipattu is a few bus stops from Manimangalam towards Sriperumpudur. The Babaji cave is around 3 km from the Malaipattu bus stop. In between comes the Kalyana Srinivasa Perumal Temple which has a big image of Sri Anjaneyar. The Babaji Temple is dedicated to Sri Babaji. The temple also has pictures of the other Kriya Yoga Masters - Sri Shyamacharan Lahari, Sri Yukteswar Giri and Sri Paramahamsa Yogananda.



To reach Babaji Temple, You have to board Bus Route No. 55N or 583C from Tambaram Bus Stand (Opposite to the Tambaram Railway Station). Get down at Malaipattu. You have to go on foot from here, as there is no mode of transportation, for the journey. As you travel for a distance of approximately 1 km you will come across a 16-20 foot Anjaneya idol and a Perumal Temple built by Muralidhara Swamigal. At a distance of about 1.5 Km from there you can see a bunk shop and a cycle repairing shop. Besides the shop is a concrete foot path (wide enough for a car or jeep to tread) right to the gate of the estate. Travel down straight. You will reach another big gate. Don’t enter the gate. Take the small path on the left. You will reach the calm and vibrating abode of Babaji.
