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.

A beautiful temple, built in the typical south Indian style of temple architecture. It is very crowded during the evening prayers with devotees coming from far and wide.

Though crowded on week ends, The arrangement is so nice, you don't feel the crowd. You can have a nice Dharsan of the main deity.

Its at heart of city and among 108 Divya Desams dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Better to choose Rs 50 line (if you are with Family) as its always crowded. Person visiting Tirupati should plan to visit other 105 Divya Desams.

It is among the most popular and famous hindu shrines in Tamilnadu. Due to holiday, there was huge rush, however, the management offers special queue of Rs 50 Darshan. Overall location is clean and very calm. Due to close proximity to Marina beach, there is always huge rush of devotees

Very calm, despite being in a very busy neighbourhood. Very involved priests. Frequent festivals. Beware of the festival times, as it tends to draw a large crowd.

Among the most famous Hindu shrines in Chennai. It is of great mythological significance as well. Located very close to the Marina beach. Definitely worth a visit and can be combined with a visit to the beach. Highly recommended.
