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.

We visited this temple on a Sunday. A wedding was in progress with all the accompanying colour and ritual. Restoration is taking place and the gopura is covered with green mesh. The temple tank nearby is not completely polluted.

Historic Temple @ Triplicane. Been there on November '14 to accompany my friend for a prayer. The Temple is highly associated with Great Tamil Poet Bharathiyar.

Finding a place to park your vehicle is tiresome during festival times. No proper sign boards. More assistance would be appreciated.
