This is a temple located a little outside Chennai and on the coast. Easily accessible by bus or own transport. It has been built in the traditional Orissa fashion and daily pujas are done by priests from Orrisa. Nicely maintained garden. Best to visit in the evening.

The temple is very small but well maintained. The ambience is good. The temple is situated in the outskirt of the city and that's why I spent some good and peaceful time over there. Far from all the noises. It's worth visiting it.

The place is managed by some retired babus.. I find them frequenting the place. You can strike good conversation with them. The odia purohita is a decent man. Visiting the place during festival time is always a pleasure.

It's a little difficult to find and it's outside city limits. It actually works in my favor, because there are rarely any visitors (except on auspicious days). It's a very small temple but if you want some peace and quiet, it's worth visiting it. (There's some construction work going on right now which makes it difficult to take nice pictures,... More

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
