Close to Marina Beach, yet another architectural wonder from the 8th century can be part of the itinerary. 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.

Breathe taking experience. Visited at night, less crowds and you can see how spacious the whole place is under a beautiful blanket of stars! Down side is that no photos can be taken from the inside! Nevertheless the memory of the tall figures above entrances/exits are unique and unforgettably tall!

Dharshan was so fast with 50rs ticket entry,all small shrines inside the temple were really worthy to visit.every shrine has got it's own heritage value like Narasimhar sannidhi&thayar sannidhi.prasadams are too good especially soojiappam&kesari.
