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.

I visited the Jagannath Temple in Kanathur last month. I reached there around 730 AM but the shrines were not open. Their website clearly states that the shrines are open from around 630 AM. So it was a big disappointment. However it is really well maintained and peaceful. I suggest visiting after 9AM so that you can see the deities.
