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.

A must visit temple if you are in Chennai. It is small in size when compared with Mylapore Kapaleeswara Temple. Offers a peaceful atmosphere for meditation

As a resident of Chennai , this temple is one of my favourite places. The moment you step into the outer sanctum you feel the aura of the sacred shrine engulf you...dating back to the 8th century, it is a fine example of the Pallava style of temple architecture. As you approach the sanctum sanctorum you witness the benevolent and... More

The temple of Máha Vishnu located in the centre of the city. Maybe the only temple where Maha Vishnu in the form of Lord Krishna alias Parthasarathy where he sports a mush. People with illness are cured here. Not the least is the temple Prasadam. Great taste.

We took a walking tour with Storytrails around the temple and even the 3 kids with us were fascinated by the history and stories behind the structure and presence of various different gods. Would highly recommend wandering about but be respectful to the locals who are there to worship.

We reached there at around 1 PM when the temple is actually closed (between 12.30 and 4 everyday). The outer premises /foyer area of the temple were quite dirty and we did not want to return for a visit later.

Unfortunately we couldn't see main dieties due to some pooja going on and will open only in January. They showed us the POOJA Dieties. But not a place to miss.
