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.

My wife and I visited this temple for ” Vaikunyegadesi " in January 2016. There were many devotees. The police force did a good job by regulating all of us. It took us about three hours to have a glimpse of GOD. I wish the temple authorities could get rid of the system of paying Rs. 100- and having a... More

Divine place and an important shrine which all should visit. Streets are narrow so car parking is difficult. Plan accordingly. Once you are inside the temple then you get the time going fast as you get a divine feel. Historical place and lots to learn and feel from here

This temple is famous and has 4 gates. I stayed in Triplicane for 2 years. Mostly crowded but plan your visit with family. Elders will love this place. Nearby you have Barathiar Home, Mess, Beach etc. Good for weekend visits. Divine experience.
