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 better maintained temple than most. Not sure via it has VIP access though - defeats the very purpose it tries to serve.

We visited this temple on Andal Thiruadipuram and we feel very much blessed to witness so many bhagavad bhandus chanting divya prabhandams.

Being a Hindu, would love to visit any temple - irrespective of belief. Sadly, the holiness of the temple is being spoilt by a small group of people who visibly display superiority complex - hurting the sentiments of common devotees. This temple is also old like Mylapore one, but nowhere the ambience can be compared. Unless you are keen follower... More
