“A typical South India Temple”

Sri Parthasarathy Temple
Certificate of Excellence

Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: 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.

It is clearly a place where everybody goes or why would it even get a listing for review? That said it is a great example of a South Indian temple and so well worth the visit especially for a first time visitor to such a place.

well, The Deity is "one-of-a-kind" I was told. But Nothing prepares you for a comforting, yet, uplifting of the Lord in a mustache.

This place is the typical south indian temple one would want to visit. It is bright and filled with life on any given evening and also has some yummy prasadams available over the counter. The main deity is very nicely adorned with bright colours and its an enriching experience.
