  • Great temple, situated in the heart of Adyar. It has a very peaceful vibe to it and is among the more beautifully constructed temples in this area. Music concerts and other devotional programs sometimes take place here and there is a hall attached to it as well, that can be used for functions etc. Lovely place to visit on the whole.
  • The best temple in Adyar and the Annual Brahmotsavam is a must see festival. Grand celebration and joy for all those appreciating Sanatana Dharma.
  • A very well disciplined and divine place... if u miss trivanthapuram ...this place will give u bliss. Peace
  • Excellent divine place ; Lord Ganesh welcomes everyone with his grace in the outer Praharam Lord Anantha Padmanabhan resembles Thiruvananthapuram and has three doors too The wide entrance offers place to take the look of the almighty from a distance The temple also has Sannidhi for Narasimha, Durga and Navagrahas There is a also a function hall adjacent to the temple and is used for Bhajans etc A small lane on the right hand side of the temple leads to a mystic Shivalingam beneath the tree . Who knows if there is a siddhar who is resting and blessing is for years
  • Nice place to relax and shed our stress. Mind blowing pose of lord Vishu. One place were we could thirumoorthees.
