Anantha Padmanabha Swaamy temple is dedicated to Padmanabha swamy, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.The temple was built in 1964 and one of the best temple in Chennai, dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple is less crowded. A nice darshan.

This Perumal temple is located on II main road of Gandhi Nagar, Adyar,Chennai. Even though I visited this temple many times, my recent visit during Brahmotshavam, during Feb-March 2015 was a eventful one , enjoying carnatic kutcheries , almost on all 11 days , having heart-full of Perumal Dharshan, etc. As soon as you enter the temple, on right hand...

As a student, I was staying in Hostel of College of Engg Guindy and I used to visit this temple. Now, I visited this temple almost after 25 years. I enjoyed every thing about this temple- calm location, traditions, calmly atmosphere etc

For those who have been to the 'original' Anantha Padmanabha Swamy temple in Trivandrum, this will be quite a let down. To compare the two would be like comparing chalk and cheese. Not to belittle this quaint temple in the heart of a residential colony in Gandhi Nagar Adyar though! Small but well maintained. One rather glaring and striking feature... More
