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

I visited the temple in August and it was a fairly quiet time. There were still quite a few devotees and I was able to pray leisurely. The temple, especially the main idol, is very beautiful and is built in a traditional style.

Perumal acted as the driver for Parthan/ Arjunan, coz of which he is named as Parthasarathy. That's the reason that he has a mustache. Triplicane is close to Marina Beach, so it can be combined in your tour itinerary easily.

ஓம் நமோ நாராயணாய நமஹ ... Absolutely blissful temple in the heart of Chennai , huge temple with ample car parking , easily accessible by city bus and Metro rail. When we sit in silence inside the temple after the darshan of Perumal with mustache we can feel the positive vibrations over there. Must visit for all age groups ... Thanks... More
