Sri Parthasarathy Swamy Temple, Chennai Reviews
One of the oldest temples in Chennai city, the history of this temple dates back to 8th century AD, though by some accounts, the deity here is being worshipped at this place for more than 2000 years now! This wonderfully maintained temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna and is known as Parthasarathy. The deity here is worshipped along with his entire family, consort, brother, son and grandson! This is unique and is never seen anywhere else! A must visit place in Chennai!!
Totally a good spiritual place in centre of Chennai. Park your car from a bit outside and come. Because it may create traffic or you may not get a parking. Crowded on weekends. So come by working days or early morning in weekends. You will get a good dharshan.
Very ancient temple. Human beings must visit at least once in their life time. You can feel Good in this temple. The devotion can be seen literally with your own physical eyes. All preists are God's Messengers who treat the devotees with love.
Historical temple and peaceful environment... But Only annoying and painful observance here is caste discrimination followed by all the temple priests. Encouraging only devotees of bramin caste. Others are treated as second class citizens.
Great temple...Great architecture. Must visit when you are in Chennai. Even shopping around temple is a good experience.
