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.

We had a nice relaxed Darshan, especially because it was a week day with ni festivals around. The Tall Perumal idol is slightly different in the sense He displays a moustache. The sprawling complex close to the Marina Beach gives time to get charged. Do not miss the prasadams, They are very popular and have a divine taste.

Very ancient temple which is been in existence for more than thousands of years. Well maintained and the prasadam you get in the temple... More

The Parthasarathy Temple is an 8th-century Hindu Vaishnavite temple dedicated to the god Krishna, located at Triplicane, Chennai, India. The name 'Parthasarathy', in Sanskrit, means the 'charioteer of Arjuna', referring to Krishna's role as a charioteer to Arjuna in the epic Mahabaratha. Lord Krishna can be seen in Moustache here

One of the must visit temples in Chennai. Easily accessible from most parts of the city. Do visit the temple to get a flavour of South Indian devotion. Do have a glimpse of the arthi before you leave.
