erm.. Valluvar Kottam is NOT a temple and it does not have a chariot. It has the literary works of Valluvar in the hall inside. What you see is a cemented monument that looks like a chariot ! Even the wheels are cement and concrete !HariR said:I think its sort of a chariot. On festive occasions they take the deity in it around the city, so that people who cannot visit the temple can get the blessings.
