Mahabalipuram day trip from Chennai by Wonder tours

3 reviews
The coastal town of Mahabalipuram makes an ideal day trip from bustling Chennai, but organizing admission fees and transportation to explore independently takes up valuable sightseeing time. On this tour, reach Mahabalipuram in comfort by private vehicle—with entry fees and round-trip transportation from your Chennai hotel included. Explore the Cave temples and rock sculptures with your guide to lead the way, and gain insight into Mahabalipuram’s fascinating 7th-century history.

The Hridayaleeswarar Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva as Hridayaleeswarar and Divine Mother Shakti as Devi Maragadambigai. The main shrine have Sivalingam. The temple is associated with Poosalar Nayanar. The temple was built by Poosalar Nayanar in his heart by devotional contemplation. The temple was built physically by king Mahindra Pallava by a dream command from Lord Shiva. The temple also has Vinayaga, Navagragha and few more deities. At 3 minutes walk from here another relatively big temple Sri Bakthavatsala Perumal temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu is located which is one of the 108 Divya desam dedicated to Vishnu. A small Anjaneya temple is located near to this temple. To access Sri Hridayaleeswarar Temple from Chennai city, by road take Chennai-Tiruvallur highway via Avadi. Or take local train and get down at Thiruninravur station. From Thiruninravur station/bus stop share autos are available which will take just 3-5 minutes travel. As the temple is located in a uncrowded area ample parking space is there.

This is one of the best temple I have ever visited in the recent time. this temple is very old and the inner sanctum is in the shape of a heart. this temple is to showcase the true devotion of poosalar. Very easy reach from outer ring road. Not commercialized unlike other popular temples in chennai. Amman name is maragadhambal. A temple must to visit!!

There is nothing like different from other temples. We could not find anything that is not available in other temples.

Myself along with my mom visited Sri Hridayaleeswarar temple on a Sunday evening, it was situated close to Bhaktavatsala perumal temple at Thiruninravur on the outskirts of Chennai. We got down at Thiruninravur railway station, took an auto to reach the temple. Poosalar Nayanar hailed from the town, 'Ninravur', was a devotee of Lord Shiva, built a temple for Lord Shiva in his heart, as he's not rich enough to built a temple of his own. Lord Shiva was inspired by his devotion and appeared in dreams of the king to build a temple at the same place as built in Poosalar's heart. Hence it's named as Hridayaleeswarar. The main deity of the temple was Hrudayaleeswarar & Goddess Maragada ambika. Had a divine evening at the temple.
