Our family use to visit this temple every Saturday or Sunday. This temple is being maintained neat and clean. All Seva's is being conducted at nominal cost. We can have dracaena of Perumal and Sivan in the same premises.

First thing about this temple, its clean, a small and silent place in Gandhi nagar. Parking is difficult. Also watch out for the one way.

Centrally located and yet retains the old world charm of a temple. Would recommend if you could park at a distance and walk to this temple so as not to inconvenience the folks on this road. The platform in front of the sanctum sanctorum is an excellent idea which helps devotees to sit and have darshan of the Lord.

The Ananta padmanabhaswamy temple in Adyar is one of its kind, and the Lord is found in a reclining posture, in His Ananta Shayanam. Its a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood in which this temple is located. Adjacent to it, the temple mandapam is available for organizing various functions including marriages.

I like right in front of the temple and this was my introduction to Tamil traditions. Over the years, I have seen many music festivals and Rath Yatras in the temple..
