Sri Parthasarathy Swamy Temple, Chennai Reviews
22.09.2018, புரட்டாசி 6 சனிக்கிழமை. அதிகாலை எழுந்து, திருவல்லிக்கேணியில் உள்ள, ஐயா ‘இன்னம்பூரான்’ அவர்களுடன் அவரது நண்பரின் இல்லத்திற்குச் சென்றோம். இன்முகம் காட்டி வரவேற்றனர். நண்பர் எங்களை யெல்லாம் பார்த்தசாரதி கோயிலுக்குள் அழைத்துச் சென்றார். புரட்டாசி மாதம் முதல் சனிக்கிழமை. கூட்டம் கூடுதலாகவே இருந்தது. நண்பர் எங்களுக்குச் சிறப்பு தரிசனம் செய்வித்தார். வலம் வந்து அங்குள்ள மற்ற தெய்வங்களையும் வணங்கிக் கொண்டோம். அருள்மிகு பார்த்தசாரதியை வணங்கிய நிறைவு எனது இல்லாளின் முகத்தில் தெரிந்தது. என்றுதான் ஈடேறுமோ என்று எண்ணி ஏங்கியிருந்த முகம் மலர்ந்தது கண்டு எனது உள்ளமும் குளிர்ந்தது. விவேகானந்தரின் கடிதத்தைக் கல்வெட்டில் பொறித்து வைத்துள்ளனர். அனைவரும் அவரது அறிவுரையை ஏற்று நடக்க வேண்டும்.
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!!
One of the famous templates of Chennai. Very clean. The food is offered to everyone in the name of Prasadam after offering to God. This temple is very peaceful and is the best place for mediation.
Our favorite temple to visit in chennai! The main deity of the temple is Parthasarathy (charioteer of Arjuna in Mahabharatha) and probably the only deity who sports a moustache! This temple is one of the 108 divyadesams (sacred places for vaishnavites).
One of the famous old temple in triplicane located near mariana beach. You can park your bike near the temple with free of cost. I don't know about car parking charge. Three ways of darshan available, a special darshan which cost ₹100 per head , another one is ₹50 and common darshan which is free. If you are affordable go for ₹100 which has only small que that saves us lots of time.
