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

I like this temple because even though it is beautiful it is seldom too crowded (crowded=there is a long queue to enter) Also the pujaris are usually not pushing people during darshan. I supposed the above two are linked. The only negatives I can think of is that one can never view th idol fully in one go (its a... More

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

The temple is called the temple of Anandhapadmanabha Swamy . The temple dates back around 1200 years to the late eighth or early ninth century AD. In the centuries gone by, Malayadipatti was also referred to as Thiru Valattur Malai and was known for two rock cut temples – one dedicated to Siva and the other to Vishnu- both hewn... More

this temple is located at Adyar Gandhi Nagar. The temple is very clean and well maintained. the Main Deity is Lord Padhmanabha Swami. We have the pleasure of worshipping Ganesha, Goddess Durga, Anjeneyar and Navagraham also here. this is just like Trivandrum Padmanabha Swami temple.

The temple that I visit more often these days. Easily one of the cleanest temples in Chennai. The Anandha Padmanabha Swamy is large spanning easily 20ft lenght, mostly decked with Gold Kavasam. The Ganesha, the Anjaneya, Durga Godess, the Navagrahams, the Arasa Maram Shiva Lingam are sheer delight to offer prayers too. Most days have a Music program or religious... More
