Overview

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.

Fascinating and Historic Temple. A must visit for the Intricate 8th Century Architecture and the Grand Deity. The Marina Beach is not very far off.

Really loved this temple as it felt a lot less touristy than the others although it was still very busy, but with devotional people. Lovely carvings and supposedly the oldest structure in Chennai.
