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.

I have visited this temple on two occasions, both late in the evening. Hence, I could not examine the architecture and sculpture to place to chronology of the temple. There is strict prohibition about photography in this temple, even outside the five shrines in the temple complex. The website of temple is highly misleading, when it comes to the history... More

It has multiple temples inside the complex. With main one in center. There's model of whole complex kept inside. That would give good idea about how great and magnificent whole complex is. Personally, I felt all electrical equipment, likes of AC vents, fans, lights, somehow reduces the old world charm. But if you care to look beyond that, there's lot... More

It is a nice temple. A must go for tourists. A pleasurable experience. The history of this famous temple dedicated to God Krishna with glorious South Indian style architecture which is symbol of worship. Excellent sculptures. Maintained clean and temple is spacious.

Very old temple with history behind it. Both the main deity (Perumal) and Lord Ranganathar are magnificent ; however Lord Ranganathar (which is not the main deity) is the most serene. Unfortunately the Temple tank is not maintained well. Certainly a must see temple for those who are in Chennai and are particular about visiting Temples. Though Saturdays are auspicious... More

The Swarga Vasal darisanam is eternal bliss. During the Brahmothsavam festival the chanting of Nalayira Divya Prabhandam and the Azzhvar Paasuram by the Bhaktha Ghoshti is worth your life!

I thank God Shiva for helping me in visiting this temple at each of my Chennai visit. The vastness of this temple is enchanting. Luckily there was no rush when i visited with my family i.e. November 6, Surprising the climate was very pleasant and worth remembering for a long time, since Chennai is normally hot. For me this is... More
