3. Kandakottam, Parry Corner
4. Tiruporur Murugan Temple
5. Kundrathur Murugan Temple
6. Balamurugan Temple, in one of the by-lanes opposite to Valluvar Kottam

Siruvapuri - A very important muruga shrine - Balasubramanyaswami - Eulogised by Arunagirinathar - on the way to Periyapalayam. Please check the below link which will help you to identify many ancient temples in and around Chennai and elsewhere.

You can also visit skandasramam in Sembakkam.

Uthiramerur Balasubramanyaswamy which is adjacent to the perumal temple which is a classic emobodiment of Pallavan architecture, Kadambar Koil where Lord Shiva was worshipped by Muruga, Ilaiyanarvelur, Kanchi Kumarakottam, Rathinagiri on the way to vellore, Vallimalai near Katpadi where Muruga married Valli, Kangeyanallur the birth place of Thiru Muruga. Kripanandavariyar..etc. All these are within drivable distance from Chennai.
