It's serene and peaceful. Not a big temple though. Located quite interior from ECR and parking is on the streets. The temple has a central Mandir and need to climb few stairs to reach the idol. The idol was quite different and majestic. The architecture differs from other Hindu temples what we have been used to. The Mandir is surrounded... More

This temple is situated on the East Coast Road, just before the Mayajaal cineplex and right after the toll plaza. Constructed right on the beach front of the ECR, the sight from the temple is a breathtaking one - the temple literally overlooks the ocean, and evokes thoughts of Dwarka (as in the mythology of Lord Krishna) The temple houses...

I am a person who loves to visit temples to imbibe the positive energy generated there but find it a futile exercise with the accompanying crowds, pushing, shoving, queues and taking tickets for so called express darshan! Except neighborhood temples and far flung temples of architectural value I hardly visit a temple as a place of worship anymore but on... More

Jagnath Temple is small but the temple is amazing. It is less noisy, less crowded and a little away from the city. The architecture of the temple is good and beautifully designed. It is a must visit temple in chennai. You can find a small garden and it is very calm and pleasant in here.

The Jagannath Puri temple in Chennai is built in Kalingan style reminiscent of the Jagannath Temple in Puri, Odisha. This Jagannath Puri temple in Chennai is built by the seaside in a serene ambience. This temple is built in similar style and content of ancient Jagannath temple at Puri in Odisha
