Sri Parthasarathy Temple, Chennai (Madras)

(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
One of the oldest places of worship in the city, Sri Parthasarathy Temple features intricate architecture that makes it one of the area's top attractions. Dating from the 8th century, the temple pays tribute to the Hindu god Krishna. The distinctive pyramid-like appearance is complemented with detailed carvings and colonnades, constructed during later, 16th-century add-on projects. Inside, you'll find five shrines, each dedicated to one of Lord Vishnu's forms. The temple regularly hosts festivals, prayers, and events, many of which have been held here for centuries.
