I visited the Jagannath Temple in Kanathur last month. I reached there around 730 AM but the shrines were not open. Their website clearly states that the shrines are open from around 630 AM. So it was a big disappointment. However it is really well maintained and peaceful. I suggest visiting after 9AM so that you can see the deities.

This temple is odisha style Jagannath temple but not Puri Jagannath temple. Such a big temple in the lap of nature, it is a different spiritual experience visiting this temple. Though the temple and practices are different, we loved the positive vibrations of the temple and could connect with the deity in depth.

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

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.

The temple is located in ECR near maayajaal where the road leading to the temple might be quite difficult to get. the landmark is the the road adjacent to the market will lead you to the temple. The temple is just the complete reprise of the temple in Puri. You can have a peaceful darshan here and for those who... More
