  • Parking is a serious issue. Temple is Air Conditioned. One f the early ones to AC the temple. Decent crowd. Peaceful place. Security guards can be rough and threatening. The association that runs the temple does not bother to control the security guards hence they unleash their goodself on the devotees who visit the temple during parking.

  • Temple is a place of devotion & respect... I was not allowed to enter the template as I was wearing three quarter pant.. don't know what the rule is that.. no notification written anywhere... God also says " how much & how you can devotee do it , don't force & comple things "... Anyway I given my prayer standing outside of temple & left... God bless that security wala who is checking the dress code & maintaining it..

  • Nice hindu temple...The Anantha Padmanabhaswami Temple is a Hindu temple in the neighbourhood of Adyar in Chennai, India. The temple is located on 2nd Main Road, Gandhi Nagar, near the Fortis Malar Hospital. Dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, the temple is named after the Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram and the deity Vishnu is depicted reclining on the mythological five-headed serpent as in the Padmanabhaswamy Temple of Thiruvananthapuram. The temple was constructed in 1962 on land donated by Chithira Thirunal, the last Maharaja of Travancore and caters to Chennai's Malayali community. The temple is constructed in the beautiful Kerala style and is well maintained to this date. Within the premises of the temple, lie an yagashala for conducting daily sermons. There is also a statue of Chithira Thirunal, the last Maharajah of Travancore unveiled by Lord Erskine, the then Governor of Madras on September 29, 1939 commemorating the Temple Entry Proclamation.

  • Great temple, situated in the heart of Adyar. It has a very peaceful vibe to it and is among the more beautifully constructed temples in this area. Music concerts and other devotional programs sometimes take place here and there is a hall attached to it as well, that can be used for functions etc. Lovely place to visit on the whole.

  • Excellent temple, very organized, great sevas. Many volunteers to help. Vedic, slokas chanting
