  • What a beautiful and peaceful temple !!! It is an architectural beauty inside chennai. Each and each every pillar tells a story.

  • Very Ancient Siva Temple. Very spacious Temple compound. There's a small pond inside the Temple. It s pleasantly located in main City

  • One of the great Shiva temple in chennai!!! Very peaceful environment next to starting point of ECR!!!

  • Peaceful place amongst the busiest area. I am fully attracted towards the Pooja that happens everyday after 8 pm which is very rare to see in Chennai. Lord Shiva is carried in pallak to palli arai in Parvathy amma sannathi. This happens everyday as a ritual. There is a positive and peaceful energy that comes up within you after attending that poojai.
