I had the feeling of Puri temple . well maintained temple. Pity of secular India if any Hindu temple maintained well and devotees coming is heavy it will be taken by the Govt .

Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, the temple complex dedicated to Lord Jagannath and his siblings Balabhadra and Subhadra, is an island of tranquility, and sheer bliss. Once upon a time there used to be only one Jagannath temple, located at the original kshetra, Puri in Odisha. Over centuries many princely states built temples for the revered... More

This newly constructed temple, conceivably the cleanest temple of Chennai, is located at about 400 metres from Kanathur (ECR road) and is the new home of Puri Jagannath (of course along with Balabhadra and Subhadra). I had been to puri last year and had to wait for long hours in queue to meet my little friends. This temple is less... More

Its bit far off from the city on the famous ECR road on the sea shore of Bay of Bengal. The Jagannath followers have tried to make it an exact replica of Original temple in Odisha.

Not a usual south indian temple. Feels peaceful to be in this place. Don't specifically plan and come for this temple. If you are on a ride in ECR, you can visit here for a short period of time. You can spend a max of 20mins for this temple. Clean toilets too are there. A very clean and well maintained... More

This temple is definitely on the must-visit list.The truly awesome and divine environment , the lush green lawns , the sea breeze enables us to connect to GOD.Totally recommended to those on the spiritual search mode. Don't forget to visit Poseidon(beach :p) which is just 200 metres away!!! :)

An hours drive from Chennai city, situated close to Mayajaal complex. Take the left turn at the fish market junction before mayajaal. Ideal visiting time.. 6 30 to 7 30.... Also, can add ISKCON temple to your trip after completing pooja here.

Beautiful Temple, dedicated to Lord Jagannath. Its probably the only temple in India which is completely made of granite. Clean, serene and with spacious..... The right place topause and mediate or to simply get rejuvenated. If only it was within the city, my visits would have been 10 folds.
