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 was a good experience visiting this temple. The poojaries was very cooperative for puja. Better take the Darshan ticket.

“Nice temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

The roads are very crowded. I traveled from Airport to this temple and had to be back within 3 hours for my flight. It took almost 1 hour to get to the temple. Similarly another 1 hour to return. Inside the temple, since it wasn't too crowded at the time I visited, I was able to pray peacefully.

“Divine experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

The Sri Parthasarthy temple is one the largest and oldest temples in Chennai. The temple is beautiful with two Gopurams and five Vimanams and two main shrines present back to back. You feel at peace inside from the tumultous world outside. The temple sees huge crowds during festivals and the small and narrow bylanes surrounding it are full of devotees. The best time is to visit the temple on a day when there is no special event at the temple and just sit down and introspect.
