Owner description: 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.

This is a must see 8th century temple, centrally located and easy to get to. It is built in South Indian style, decorated with statues of lots of colourful dieties. As it is very popular temple both with the locals and tourists, it can get very crowded and queues build up to view the main Gods an Goddesses Murtis inside.... More

It is a large and very attractive temple in Chennai. The deity's idol in the sanctum sanctorium is magnificent and I could not turn my eyes away. It is an ancient temple with beautiful Gopuram. Different idols/statues on this are really captivating. However, it is frustrating to see the dirtiness in the temple surroundings. The temple is not maintained properly.... More

Surprised that a temple so steeped in history and so highly venerated should be so shoddily kept. The drive outside was filthy with cow dung around. Inside was not much better and all the devotees and priests seemed to care about were the morning prayer rituals. Does God like to live in such surroundings?

Temple is worth visit with its beautiful details and divinity. You are not allowed to click photos which restraints you to capture the visit which is beautiful. Its near Marina beach and Kapaleeswara temple so both the attractions can be adjusted with this temple at one go. Temple is closed between 12 pm to 4 pm. Evening in this temple... More

I have visited this temple on two occasions, both late in the evening. Hence, I could not examine the architecture and sculpture to place to chronology of the temple. There is strict prohibition about photography in this temple, even outside the five shrines in the temple complex. The website of temple is highly misleading, when it comes to the history... More
