Probably one of the best temples in Chennai. Been visiting this temple in all my Chennai visits. Although not the same as the Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Trivandrum it is still very good. Very Accessible as well.

I had visited it many times in the 90s and early 2000 and could not visit as I was away from Chennai for the most part in the past 10 years. On my visit in June... More

This temple shows Vishnu in sleeping posture. It is such a beautiful temple and is very powerful. I know of a neighbor who had knee pain that did not respond to treatment for more than 2 years despite going to many doctors and taking multiple treatments. She was asked to walk around the main deity each Saturday. The first 4... More

This temple is very peaceful, spacious and feels a lot like the Kerala one. The deity is the same as the Kerala deity where you can look at him through the three doors. A must visit amazing temple in Chennai !
