Maha Bodhi Society of Srilanka is near Egmore Railway Station. I visited this place while going one of the branches of SaravanaBhawan. Some security is there outside. The temple is dedicated to Lord Buddha.

Not many know this place, as it is located in a crowded Kennet Lane, In between Egmore Railway Station and Office of the City Commissioner of Police in an one way street. Opp Hotel Pandian. The tower is typical, but as it is run by a Sri Lankan Trust, it serves mostly as a tourist home for Sri Lankan Nationals and visiting Monks. Entry is restricted for obvious reasons and policemen are always on guard outside.

I have been to Maha Bodhi society of Srilanka on 15th Aug'17, it was just walk-able distance from Egmore Railway station. This temple serves as a hub for pilgrims from Srilkana. Most of the visitors are from Srilanka. Non Srilankans were not at all seen and the temple was more crowded during my visit. There is a big Buddha statue of 18 feet height. Offered pranams to Lord Buddha. The temple authorities were also involved in social activities like medical treatment for sick people so & so..

Located on kennet lane in egmore this temple serves as a hub for pilgrims from Sri Lanka. There are multiple hotels around it and a couple of good restaurants. The street is filled with vendors selling fruits for the pilgrims to snack on . There is a tasmac down the lane aswell as a plethora of shops to get sims from to dial home . There is a pharmacy on the top of kennet lane aswell . If you are headed to maha bodi society you are in good hands the head monk of the temple mahanama thero will take good care of you and answer any questions you have on chennai.
