  • 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 divine place ; Lord Ganesh welcomes everyone with his grace in the outer Praharam Lord Anantha Padmanabhan resembles Thiruvananthapuram and has three doors too The wide entrance offers place to take the look of the almighty from a distance The temple also has Sannidhi for Narasimha, Durga and Navagrahas There is a also a function hall adjacent to the temple and is used for Bhajans etc A small lane on the right hand side of the temple leads to a mystic Shivalingam beneath the tree . Who knows if there is a siddhar who is resting and blessing is for years

  • A very well disciplined and divine place... if u miss trivanthapuram ...this place will give u bliss. Peace

  • 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.

  • Maintained neatly. Presiding deity looks alike Sri Padmanabha swamy, Thiruvananthapuram. Parking may be difficult during auspicious days.
