Nitya Kalyana Perumal Temple, Chennai Reviews

  • An old but famous Vishnu temple built mostly with stones, in a quiet locality on the east coast road. Unmarried boys & girls visit this temple to pray for their successful marriage as the temple itself is known for it. Can see many newly weds here as they visit the temple after their prayer is fulfilled. It's a beautiful temple to visit otherwise too. Crowded on Saturdays like any other Vishnu temple. It has plenty of car parking space. Tasty curd rice and pepper rice prasadhams available (for a small price).

  • The other reviews cover most of the important stuff about the temple. I would like to stress upon that this is a very ancient temple and even the governments doing its part to renovate it now. Although it’s small, it is renowned and attracts a good share of crowd being far away from the city. It has an okay parking next to it, which is free. There is a paid toilet on the other side of the temple. The hawkers try to over sell the garlands don’t go for it. Tender coconuts are always available around here, which is better than a bottled water. As of Jan 2018, the renovation is still in progress and would take another few months to complete.

  • This temple is really good place. Also it’s very very important for all single wanted to get marry. Real supreme power is there. Beware that the shops near by sells the worst material garland and also coconut. They r real robbers. Kindly get those stuffs near by your home and give to god.

  • Power full god. Here people believe that after visiting the temple they got married soon. There is a format for your marriage, u have to buy two flower garland one is for God and another one is for who want to marry soon (devotee). With that u have round nine times the temple and that garland have to be kept in your home Pooja room. Within that garland going to dry u will get married or atleast u will get the root. This is the special believe.

  • It is believed that if boys and girls awaiting to get married visit this temple, the marriage will get fixed within a span of 3 months.With the same belief we headed to this temple around two and half years back. It was a bit of surprise when the belief turned into reality in my case and what was more surprising is even my husband's family had visited the same temple around a week earlier to when we had visited. I would definitely suggest and recommend people to visit the temple with full faith in god ..
