Its a beautiful place to spend time and pray to Lord Jagannath. There are other deities in the premises and the priests are well versed. There is a small pond within the boundary with big live fishes for kids to enjoy.

Peacefully pleasant Temple !!! Located just off the ECR Road, Reddykuppam road, Kannathur, So, very easily accessible from all parts of Chennai via City bus and it's a must visit place to experience Puri Jaganath ji in Chennai itself. We can combine some of the nearby temples like ISKCON and Prithyangara Devi Temple to make it a one day spiritual... More

I had been to this place as an outing with my friends. Well identifying this place was a bit difficult as there are no instructions to guide to this place. We had to ask people and then go. The place is neatly tucked in a corner. Very peaceful place. Loved the ambiance. Nice place to take kids and elders for... More

It's a temple located in a garden. You will feel heavenly and peaceful. Stone pillar in centre is beautifully carved. It's little inside from ecr, just opposite mayajal

We visited with family to this temple on New Year day. Surprised to see Chennai has such a temple in the outskirt of the city. It is close to MayaJaal in ECR. I must visit place for friends and fellow citizens from Orissa living in Chennai. Well maintained, neat and clean temple with lot of trees and plants around.

Great architecture, traditionally laid out and very calm and quiet place....the entry point off ECR is a bit obscure and one would tend to miss it...comes just before Mayajaal. Lovely place to spend a quiet hour or two, away from the madding crowd!

Vast area and built with modern architect considering ancient culture. Crowded on holidays. Must visit on working days for nice view & prayer. Transport will be difficult and hence better to take taxi from anywhere in the city. Book taxi for 4 to 6 hours as package
