The area
Neighborhood: Mylapore
The religious and cultural epicenter of Chennai, Mylapore is highly revered by the locals and tourists for the rich history and architectural marvels that line its narrow alleys and markets and is one of the oldest residential neighbourhood of the city. Home to a cluster of tree-lined avenues full of popular churches and the renowned Kapaleeswara Temple soaked in Dravidian architectural vibes, Mylapore is filled with small lanes with old-style homes, music auditoriums and stores selling music and religious memorabilia. The bazaars selling jewellery, fresh produce and flowers that surround the streets of this neighbourhood provide a colourful backdrop to the temple. Aimless strolls through the small lanes lead you to hidden corners of some mouth-watering south-Indian dishes served at local places like Maami’s mess, Jannal Kadai and Kaalathi Stall.

Great place to know a bit about Hindu philosophy and the collection of books in the library is very good.

A divine and peaceful atmosphere awaits you the moment you enter this temple. People can be seen meditating in front of the Gods. Photography is not allowed. The best time to visit is in the evenings.

A must place to visit when you come to Chennai. Symmetrical construction is unique and takes take to look at and understand. So have sufficient time and visit this place.
Bhajan and Arathi are also a must watch and it gives an inner peace.
Experience Silence and they still follow.

Really relaxing place in such a busy and dirty town. It is a pity that taking photos from inside is prohibited. No understanding why ?

Just off one of Chennai's busiest roads, but surprisingly quiet. The new temple is seen at its best at sunset. Take in the view of it floating above the gardens to the left where I once saw a mongoose. If you're a yoga philosophy student, don't miss the bookstore! If you want to enter the temple for an experience of deep peace and quiet, you're expected to first leave your shoes and rinse your feet in the cloakroom on the right (no charge).

A lovely place to go to. Calm. Serene. If you want peace and want to meditate this is the place to be. Built similar to the Belur Math, this is a great place. I was fortunate to visit this temple and also visit the Original (Old) temple built by Swami Brahmananda. The body becomes rejuvenated by just sitting for 5 minutes.

Gods own place for divine and purity. One could get deeply connected to your self in this place. Best place to ask questions to your own self and to find the answer in deep.
