Sri Parthasarathy Swamy Temple Reviews & Ratings

  • Arrangements during September-October (Purattaasi) month is very good. Lord Parthasarathy showers blessings with a tweaked moustache. There are different entries for dharshan like Free dharshan, INR50, INR100. Not sure about the exact date, but came to know that only one day in a year the main God of the temple possess without a moustache, which needs to be verified. Prasadham Counters: Rates are nominal. Expected tamarind rice to be greater as in most Tamilnadu temples and Perumal temple, but it isn't that great but okay. It costs INR20. I had also tried a sweet called SojjiAppam which was good and it costed INR10. Most of the items costs only INR10, which is a good news for foodies out there. Yours, Vatsan. புரட்டாசி மாத ஏற்பாடுகள் மிகவும் நன்றாக உள்ளது. மூலவர் அருள்மிகு ஸ்ரீ பார்த்தசாரதி சுவாமி கம்பீரமாக முறுக்கு மீசையுடன் அருள்பாளிக்கிறார். கடவுளை தரிசிக்க சிறப்பு நுழைவு கட்டணமும் உள்ளது. அவை இலவச பொது வழி, ரூ50, ரூ100 ஆகும். சரியான தேதி தெரியாத போதும், பிறரிடம் இருந்து கேட்ட வரைக்கும் வருடத்தில் ஒரே ஒரு நாள் மட்டும் மூலவர் முறுக்கு மீசை இல்லாமலும் அருள்பாளிப்பாரம். பிரசாதம்: விலை பட்டியல் நியாய விலையாக இருந்தது. பெரும்பாலான தமிழ்நாடு மற்றும் பெருமாள் கோவில்களில் இருப்பது போன்று இருக்கும் என எதிர் பார்த்த புளியோதரை அவ்வளவு சிறப்பாக இல்லை என்றாலும் மோசம் என்று கூறமுடியாது. இதற்கு ரூ20 கொடுக்கப்பட்டது. பின்னர் நான் சொஜ்ஜியப்பம் வாங்கி சுவைத்தேன், நன்றாகவும் இருந்தது. இதற்கு ரூ10 கொடுத்தேன். அனேக தின்பண்டங்கள் ரூ10 என்ற நியாய விலையில் கிடைப்பதால், இந்த செய்தி உணவு பிரியர்களுக்கு மகிழ்ச்சி அளிக்கும் என நம்புகிறேன். நன்றி, வணக்கம். உங்கள் ஸ்ரீ வத்சன்.

  • The processions that take place are also peaceful. Nothing to do with big drums and crackers. One can not get scared and pass by with ease. A number of flower vendors line up along with the temple. A mark of of history and culture . And how it still stands strong with time.

  • Lovely temple. Peaceful and pleasant atmosphere inside the temple. Powerful god. Cleanliness can be better Outside of the temple is total chaos. The place is full of beggars and cattle, parking facility is very poor. The streets around the temple are narrow and always crowded!

  • A divine place having our old tradition. Such a big temple visiting all the sannadhis of all deities, cleanses and gives an excellent peace of mind and physical fitness. We can be assured of such benefits going to bigger temples, which is available at Chennai, which is boon for Chennai people.

  • Great temple to visit. Steep in history. Well maintained in the inside although the outside can be better. Do not miss while in Chennai!
