Great architecture, traditionally laid out and very calm and quiet place....the entry point off ECR is a bit obscure and one would tend to miss it...comes just before Mayajaal. Lovely place to spend a quiet hour or two, away from the madding crowd!

Vast area and built with modern architect considering ancient culture. Crowded on holidays. Must visit on working days for nice view & prayer. Transport will be difficult and hence better to take taxi from anywhere in the city. Book taxi for 4 to 6 hours as package

Located very near to sea this is a nice place to visit. The temple is very well maintained and peaceful. Only the approach road is not good.

If you like calm and quite place to rejuvenate your thoughts.. Please visit that place. The most amazing thing of this place is its simplicity. Although the neighborhood is not very urban but worth a visit.

This temple must be the most peaceful temple of Chennai. It might be because it is very recent (inaugurated in 2001), but in any case it is perfect if you want to pray peacefully or if you want to see the difference between typical Oriya and Tamil architectures. This temple has indeed been built based on old Oriya temples style... More
