Close to Marina Beach, yet another architectural wonder from the 8th century can be part of the itinerary. An intricate pyramid-shaped rajagopuram (dome) stands prominently and is the main feature of the temple. As anecdotes go, the British were unable to pronounce the original name, Thiriallikeni, and rechristened it Triplicane.

Stunning architectural elements to the temple complex. Very crowded on the outside and difficult to get a car near but worth the effort.

another excellent temple in Tamil Nadu, I could spend so much longer admiring them, and the way they are in communities, accessed by the population through out the day, is admirable

Not a common view in other temples. This temple's prasadams are quite good. One can get many varieties on payment. This temple is near to Marina Beach. To... More
