An intricate pyramid-shaped rajagopuram (dome) stands prominently and is the main feature of the temple. As anecdotes go, the British were unable to pronounce the original name, Thiriallikeni, and rechristened it Triplicane. « less

If you are wanna see oldest temples in Chennai, this is one of the temple built and tells the world about our rich culture through sculptures. The place is easily accessible by all modes of transport. There is strong belief that if you worship this lord and do rituals your request will come true.

This is one of the oldest and most revered Hindu temples in Chennai. The presiding deity's name is "Parthasarathy", literally meaning the Charioteer.

Located at Triplicane near to Beach. Very nice and old temple. You will have frequent connectivity by bus and suburban train to reach. Inside the temple you can feel the divine power. Good place to visit with family.

It is one of the oldest temple in the city facing the Bay of bengal. It is said that if we visit this temple it equal to visiting five temples at a time. You also get nice prasadams too.

Parthasarathy as Krishna is known as for his role of Charioteer of Arjuna during the Mahabharata War is the deity at this Temple. The devout will find lot of solace in this clean place. Just immerse in Krishna when you visit..
