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

Also if you choose a festival day then you can buy meals ticket to have a taste of the temple cooked tasty food. Get to talk in oriya. Riding on bike is a better option.Or you also got... More

Located very near to sea this is a nice place to visit. The temple is very well maintained and peaceful. Only the approach road is not good.

If you like calm and quite place to rejuvenate your thoughts.. Please visit that place. The most amazing thing of this place is its simplicity. Although the neighborhood is not very urban but worth a visit.
