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 place in Chennai. One of the oldest temples, dedicated to Lord Sri Krishna, in the avatar of Parthasarathy, or charioteer to Arujna.

For Vaishnavaites or others who love Krishna, this temple is a must see. Probably this is the only temple in world, Where Sri Krishna as Parthasarathy, displays white moustache. Also this is one of the 108 divyadesams and only divyadesam in Chennai city and accessible easily.

Temple is being maintained nicely. It's an ecstasy to see Lord Parthasarathy in his abode. The sanctum sanctorum of the lord is divine and the management provided air condition for the people standing in the line, which is really needed in the sunny part the day.

The temple is one of the oldest Vaishanva temples and one of 108 vaishnava divyadesams. The main idol is Lord Parthasarathy and there are mandirs of other vaishnava lords too. One should definitely visit this temple during their trip to Chennai.
