About
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.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Royapettah
Another busy neighbourhood that is a center of trade and commercial related sctivities is the famous and popular Royapettah. Apart from being known for its many tourist attractions, Royapettah is a favourite shopping and entertainment check in for all budget travelers. Popular for shops selling home fabrics, traditional sweets, furniture and house décor, it can be quite a delight for all those looking at packing in a range of quick shopping on a busy touristy day. For those seeking to take a break from a shopping agenda, visit the magnificent 150-year old Amir Mahal – one of the largest palaces in the city or chill at Amethyst, a nostalgically posh haven that's outrageously popular with expats and well-off Chennaiites for its creative menu and beautiful range of artefacts and jewellery.

Visited this very beautiful temple. It’s seems to date back a long time ago judging from the structure and carvings. Very beautiful and serene. Can get quite busy at times. Beautiful chariot carving of Arjun can be seen. Lots of little structure for one to offer respect . Entry is free. It was amazing to see so many young people sitting and meditating and offering prayer. It felt really good to be there. Some crafts could be purchased outside the temple.

The beginnings of this temple can be traced to 6 century. The temple is dedicated to Vishnu. There are many shrines within the complex. Elaborate and ornate - like other Hindu temples.

Another hidden gem, a working temple that has been in use since the 8th century, near the beach in Chennai. Look for the mustache on the main idol. The energy is palpable.

There was no other temple on our task list that we had to go to when we heard about this Parthasarathy temple. It was famous as my cousin bought a car after he visited this temple in Chennai. He was lucky. WE felt blessed by the deities in this temple.
