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.

Nothing explicit, one amongst whole lot of temples in TN

This is also just like all other temples in TN, nothing special about it. Can visit once, but avoid noon visit as it can get very hot

In this vaishnavite shrine, there is a festival almost everyday and the shrine is closed only for a small time during the day. The entire locality buzzes with activity and local shops abound. The template also offers special pujas to be done upon booking, but be aware that the waiting period can be as big as an year for some... More

Lord Krishna is referred to as Parthasarathy in this temple. Parthasarathy means Arjuna's charioteer. Lord Krishna was the charioteer of Arjuna in the battle of Mahabharata. The inner hall of the temple has an idol of Lord Krishna. It's a very well maintained temple. Very neat and clean.
