About Parthasarathy Temple

You will find yourself taking a spiritual journey down the corridors of time as you enter this 8th century temple in Triplicane, Chennai. One of the oldest structures in Chennai, the temple built by the Pallavas, houses five avatars (or incarnations) of Vishnu namely Krishna, Narasimha, Varadaraja, Ramar and Ranganathar. Interestingly the entrance for the Krishna and Narasimha temples are separate. This temple is among the 108 Divya Desams dedicated to God Vishnu. The gopuram (or towers) and mandapas (or pillars) of Parthasarathy temple are intricately carved out, a typical feature of South Indian temple architecture. There are two gopurams in the temple, one in the east and one in the west direction. Parthasarathy in Tamil means charioteer, this refers to Krishna as Arjuna’s charioteer and is one of the few temples dedicated to this form of Krishna.

Pro Tip: This is near the Marina Beach and can be visited at the same time.
