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.

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.

Most important temple in chennai is Sri Parthasarathy Temple which is located in Triplicane, which is my favorite. In my childhood days, daily i used to visit this temple early morning. Such a divine place, where our mind and soul will become pure. Architecture of the temple is awesome. I recommend everyone to visit this place once in their life... More

The holy shrine is one among 108 Vaishnavaites Divyadesam eulogised by the great saints alvazhars and an ancient temple in Tamilnadu which has been adhering to the traditional poojas and allied rituals. Sanctum sanctorium will make the person who visits a lasting impact.
