This temple sitting in the heart of Adyar houses the majestic avatar of Vishnu in a recline position. It is one of the temples where the culture and values are upheld very well by the priest and the staff. Any time favorite destination.

Makes you feel calm...wonderfully clean...an area to sit in front of the main deity and watch the pujas, just mediate..or just soak up the divine bliss and peace. An experience not to be missed...

This is an fine temple of Lord Ananatha padmanabha and connected with the big excellent hall for Bhajans and discourses . The hall can accomodate more than 1000 people and it has an excellent ambiance . I attended a Thirupuggazha bhajan there was left speakless with the chorus singing and the vibration.

The Navarathri decorations are awesome. It feels good to sit and listen to the several bajans and concerts that are conducted in the adjacent auditorium through which one has to compulsorily... More
