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.

At this temple, I could feel a rush with people, all walking quickly as if to catch a train. The prasadam is excellent here... More

The temple is famous for its cleanliness and following strict ritual practices. One can get utmost satisfaction inside. The security arrangement and display boards with updated programmes are excellent.
