I visited this temple to attend my colleague's reception which was conducted on the lawn nearby the Temple. This temple is 1 KM from Uthandi Toll gate if you are coming from Chennai. Look for Indian Overseas branch and from there you need to ask for the route as it located quite interior. Temple is opened till 7.30 PM, after... More

This would be a nice temple that you would like to take your family, if you are looking for a replica of Puri temple in Chennai. I have been visiting this temple since its Kumbabishekam, way back about 10 years before and I am still going there at the wake of any opportunity. There are many attractions that you should...

I visited the Jagannath Temple in Kanathur last month. I reached there around 730 AM but the shrines were not open. Their website clearly states that the shrines are open from around 630 AM. So it was a big disappointment. However it is really well maintained and peaceful. I suggest visiting after 9AM so that you can see the deities.

Temple which is odishya style Jagannat temple is a must visit - if you are looking to experience a calm and serene atmosphere. Its little off on the ECR road side and one might miss the turn easily . Google map route is the best way to follow . D

This temple is odisha style Jagannath temple but not Puri Jagannath temple. Such a big temple in the lap of nature, it is a different spiritual experience visiting this temple. Though the temple and practices are different, we loved the positive vibrations of the temple and could connect with the deity in depth.

Its a beautiful place to spend time and pray to Lord Jagannath. There are other deities in the premises and the priests are well versed. There is a small pond within the boundary with big live fishes for kids to enjoy.
