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.

  • Legend is that Lord Perumal married to 360 brides, one every day, to fulfill the request made by brides' father. Hene, it is said that unmarried will get married if they worship here by offering garlands to the deity. It is required that one needs to visit the temple again after getting married along with the spouse to complete the ritual. Please check the timing: I suppose you will not be allowed between 12 noon and 4 pm. Right from the entrance at ECR you will see people selling garlands. You can buy them near the temple as well, for about Rs 200 per pair. Do not miss the peeper rice available there for sale. Tender coconuts are really cheap over here.

  • 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.

  • What a divine place this is! There is a story about the temple is that here Lord Vishnu get married daily that is why the name of temple is Nitya(daily) Kalyana(solution). But very neglected by the ASI and government officials. Must be promoted like wise Mahabalipuram and other famous shrines.
