A Great experience

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.

Visit if you are looking for a calm and peaceful place to spend your evening. I recommended to my friends and they are loved... More

This temple has indeed been built based on old Oriya temples style... More

Off the East Coast Road (ECR) in Chennai, between Toll Plaza and Mayajaal at Kanathur Reddy Kuppam almost on the sea shore, lies Dakshinakshetra that houses the primary temple of Jagannath and some other shrines. As the visitors enter the premises, they are awe-struck by a soaring granite tower over the main sanctum in the Kalinga architectural style with a... More
