This temple is my favourite temple in the city. It is located in the heart of the city in a nice residential area. The temple premises are clean and very well maintained. Although it can get crowded at certain times, a peaceful darshan is guaranteed almost always. The devotee is not rushed to leave especially if you visit on weekday... More

Lord Vishnu is in the 'Ananthasayanam' pose similar to the famous Trivandrum Padmanabhaswamy, in this quiet temple in Adyar. The Lord is beautifully decorated and adorned with flowers and jewels. Their brahmotsavam celebrations are done in a very grand manner.

This is the temple closest to my house in Adyar, and my mother has been going there for many years. It started as a very simple temple, though now its become quite big. They frequently organize rath yatras and also are a venue for wedding ceremonies.

The temple is located in a calm and posh residential locality, away from the huzz buzz of city life. The temple is a replica of the Padmanabha Swamy temple in Trivandrum, where the main god is in a reclining position. The temple is well maintained too. Adyar is well connected from the rest of the city and provides a one... More
