A lovely place to visit. A big meditation hall. New mutt is an major attraction. Although visiting old mutt near bookshop is also nice. Parking at new mutt only. Good to get religious books from bookshop, catering all age group.

This is perhaps my favourite "temple" in the city. The peace is the first hook but then there is so much more. Unlike a lot of old temples this one is clean and well maintained. It has a nice big hall where you can easily seat yourself for any length of time with no one shooing you off. Everyone is... More

It is placed in the midst of mad traffic of center of Chennai, but the moment you enter the premises you forget the rest. Serine, well maintained calm place, excellent place to meditate. New temple you have ample place to sit and contemplate. You can sit and experience the higher self immediately when you sit for meditation at old temple.... More

In comparison to other temples in Chennai, this was a great surprise - very clean, very organized. I wish all the other temples were as clean. Foreigners can visit all areas.

Skip the nearby Kapaleeswara Temple and spend the time in the lovely and peaceful grounds here. Do some meditation in the two temple halls, and browse the bookstore for thought provoking works in English
