A view of Valluvar Kottam.
‘Valluvar Kottam’ is a modern landmark in Chennai, which is dedicated to the classical Tamil poet, philosopher and saint 'Thiruvalluvar'.
The monument was constructed in 1976 in the memory of Thiruvalluvar, who wrote his famous Thirukkural about 2,000 years before. All the 133 chapters of the Thirukkural which include 1330 verses are inscribed on bas-relief in the front hall corridors.
The construction of Valluvar Kottam resembles a temple chariot. A life-size statue of the Thiruvalluvar has been installed in the 39 metre high chariot. More photos and information were posted by Sunder on 17-21 December 2010
