Except neighborhood temples and far flung temples of architectural value I hardly visit a temple as a place of worship anymore but on... More

Jagnath Temple is small but the temple is amazing. It is less noisy, less crowded and a little away from the city. The architecture of the temple is good and beautifully designed. It is a must visit temple in chennai. You can find a small garden and it is very calm and pleasant in here.

The Jagannath Puri temple in Chennai is built in Kalingan style reminiscent of the Jagannath Temple in Puri, Odisha. This Jagannath Puri temple in Chennai is built by the seaside in a serene ambience. This temple is built in similar style and content of ancient Jagannath temple at Puri in Odisha

A lovely temple tucked inside ECR! The murthis of Krishna, Shubadhra and Balaram are replicas of Puri Jaganatha shrine murthis. Also small mandirs for Kashi Vishwanath, Ganapathy, Budhha, Maa Lakshmi, Hanumanji are also present. The gardens are beautifully maintained and the temple had such a calming envirnment!

I visited this temple to attend my colleague's reception which was conducted on the lawn nearby the Temple. This temple is 1 KM from Uthandi Toll gate if you are coming from Chennai. Look for Indian Overseas branch and from there you need to ask for the route as it located quite interior. Temple is opened till 7.30 PM, after... More

I have been visiting this temple since its Kumbabishekam, way back about 10 years before and I am still going there at the wake of any opportunity. There are many attractions that you should...
