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.

Dedicated to Lord Krishna, Sri Parthasarathy Temple Triplicane is quite close to the Marina beach and is situated at Triplicane in Chennai. Literally, the word ‘Parthasarathy’ means Arjun’s charioteer and hence the temple has a unique significance of being one of the very few temples in India to be dedicated to Lord Krishna as Parthasarathy. Shaped in a beautiful pyramid-like... More

Disliked parking facilities, There two wheelers that were parked haphazardly all over the place resulting in great difficulty to get our car out.

The temple has a lot of devotees visiting everyday. However, mornings before 6 is the best time when you can feel the peace and tranquility of the place. The idol has its own charm and radiance. Must see when you are in Chennai. Beware !! the streets are narrow and commuting is a nightmare in evenings.

This temple can be crowded. However, a quick paid queue is available. The idol is huge, and beautiful. Architectural splendour!! Close to Marina Beach, and can be combined on a sunday evening.
