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

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..

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.
