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.

Partha+Sarathy means the charioteer of Arjuna. Hence Vishnu sports a mustache. The location is in a very crowded area called Triplicane, one can easily access from the beach road. There is crowd on Saturdays, not to say on festive days like 'ekadesi'. There are so many other sanctums to see as well. There is a big temple tank, but narrow... More

One of the temples I visit frequently in Chennai. This temple has a lot of history. It is a treat to visit. Remember to walk around the neighborhood and see it around the four corners of the temple. The "prasadam" (for purchase) is excellent always.

Temple is located in walkable distance from Marina and excellent architecture. Having gigantic entrance tower (Gopuram) decorated with idols and the atmosphere inside will make you relaxed and concentrate on praying the god.
