Sri Parthasarathy Swamy Temple, Chennai Reviews - Write a Review
Ancient and huge temple. Almost crowded all the time. Good darshan of the deities. Intricate and huge sculptures.
Very famous old temple of Lord Sri Maha Vishnu as Krishna (Parthasarathi). Temple area is big even though it is a residential area. Good to visit on working days to avoid crowd.
One of the best temples. So much activity around it always and such a devotional feeling Everytime you visit.
We went to this temple in the evening. The temple area is huge and we can see very old carvings on the pillars. Variety of Prasadam is available here which you can take home or enjoy there itself. Must visit temple in chennai
Temple is fantastic..divine.. the queue is diverted and managed well. The approaching road is pathetic. overflowing dustbins, cows on the road, fruit vendors make the road so narrow that one has to think twice before entering the road.on top of it there is no parking available.you rely on the flower vendor or the so called parking security who are not to be seen once you come out of the temple.poor management of parking and cleanliness.no maintenance of the temple premise.
