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.

The front entrance is full of beggars sleeping inside the temple. The million files there makes it even worse. Temple authorities should definitely address these issues and also clean up the outside area. But the temple is great inside and has an authentic and ancient feel.

This is one of the most important among 108 divyadesam, and a must go for all since constructed 1000 years ago. Get down at Thiruvallikeni MRTS Station and it is walkable from there.

All the sannadhis are clearly seen. The main deity is partha sarathy with white meesai and many scars in his face. The deity is an elevated position... More

This is a temple of my faith. As a Tamil Sri Vaishnavite, VISHNU as the charioteer, Parthasarthy for warrior prince Arjuna in the great war that is the Mahabharata, the holy destination is Chennai's Vatican for followers. PARTHA means Prince Arjuna and SARATHY means Charioteer. After the recent renovation, the interiors are even more clean and accessble to the growing... More

Went in February, so you may want to ask locals how the construction is going. I never would have made the long journey from city center if I had known much of it would be covered in plastic. Disappointed.

This temple is surely one of the oldest buildings in Chennai and was in existence much before Chennai was born. This ancient temple is nearly 1300 years old and was built by the Pallava Dynasty and is one of the 108 places dedicated to vaishnavaites ( Worhsippers of Lord Vishnu) . A visit to this ancient marvel is a must.

Architecture is good. Not only that inside premises and the god are more beautiful. Joy the architecture and pray to god properly.

This ancient temple resides amidst equally ancient houses and agraharam. The temple is not very big. But is reasonably clean and has a pond behind it that is used for formal festivals.
