This area is about 6 kms from the present Chinmaya Heritage Centre and close to the Koyambedu bus terminus.

Those times there was no mandapam or hall to conduct any ceremony and the Chinmaya Community hall(kalyanamanadapam) located at Stage-I was used by the members for their house functions and marriages.

The Sri VarasidhiVinayaka temple, designed as visualised by ParamPoojyagurudev is an important temple located in this gram stage-I. The most auspisious is that Gurudevconsegrated this temple on 6th May 1993. This is the last visit of Poojyagurudev in Chennai. This temple and the other Navaneethakrishnan temple, adjacent to this and the manapam is taken care by the temple committee.
