You can really feel the serenity in and out. It s a very quite peaceful and beautiful place to visit once in a while. Very unique and old library, worth checking out. Its comfortably located near Maylapur.

Pretty, for its pink overload, but not really outstanding. The architecture, being slightly off key for a Hindi temple, is somewhat intriguing,

Visiting this temple was the highlight of my trip to Chennai. Try to spend enough time at the temple. The bookshop is big.
