It is located in one of the developed and posh areas of Chennai.The temple is very clean and spacious compared to other temples.People,who are not able to go to Thiruvananthapuram, can satisfy themselves by visiting this temple.The temple is complete with sannadis for all deities and the pinnacle is the Aarathi at 6.30 p.m.ev.eryday

A very well maintained temple inside and out. The main idol is very beautiful and one can always enjoy the darshan without being rushed. A good example of how a temple should be maintained. Autos are also easily available near the temple.

Neat temple where no vip darshan and no body asks you money. Apeace ful darshan of the Lord who is a replica of Trivandrum Padmanabha temple. Seperate sannidhis for Sudarshanar, Lakshmi narasimhar, Anjaneyar. Rare nava graha sannidhi in a perumal temple.

Travancore Maharajas who managed this temple built a Tamil Nadu style gopuram at the East Gate (eastern entrance) to acknowledge the Tamil devotees who traveled from the East. This level of tolerance and affection for devotees is missing even in today's democracy and should be a lesson for all. The resplendent reclining Vishnu is magnificent example of India's heritage and... More
