Patalathri Narasimhar Temple, Chennai Reviews

  • Lord Ugra Narasimhar with third eye is a specialty here ; this is how he gave Darshan to Jabali Maharishi (pleasenote that Jabali was the one who tested Lord Ram by overthrowing King Dasaratha and get crowned) Goddess Ahobilavalli Thayar is full of grace and vermillion (மஞ்சள்) from here is supposed to be auspicious for wealth Goddess Andal is on the the left of Lord Narasimha The Praharam houses Sri Balaji and a few steps from there (yes One has to circumambulate a small hilllock) will get to the Azhingal Tree (அழிச்சல் மரம்) Which will cure infertility and revived memory and gnana Very nice temple and a must one to visit

  • Wonderful temple, nice place to visit. Sri Narashimar with 3 eyes is a speciality (eye on forehead). Must eat dosa with podi here.

  • Wonderful small temple, very close to the highway and a busy market place. Temple is categorised as a rock cut temple, and you do have a small hillock inside the temple compound. Was lucky enough to have a good darshan that too on a saturday today. The road from Thiruporur was really beautiful to ride in the early morning and especially the road from senneripuram post office junction to the temple passing via hanumanthapuram was really beautiful, though it had few blind curves, where one should definitely be careful, but other than that it was simply amazing to drive. Temple has kodimaram, but no rajagopuram. Lord Narashimaswamy is very huge and faces east. Not sure if the temple has a exclusive parking space, saw many vehicles just parked on the road itself. Definitely one of the must visit temple.

  • Easily reachable from the train station as well as the bus stand, this temple is dedicated to the avatar of Vishnu, Narasimha, and has a rich heritage behind it. There is a hillock within the temple compound, and the inner sanctum is located here. Get to know about special rituals conducted during festival times, and contact the temple office if you have any queries.

  • God is Great Expecialy Narasimyaya Namaha
