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...

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

A lovely temple tucked inside ECR! The murthis of Krishna, Shubadhra and Balaram are replicas of Puri Jaganatha shrine murthis. Also small mandirs for Kashi Vishwanath, Ganapathy, Budhha, Maa Lakshmi, Hanumanji are also present. The gardens are beautifully maintained and the temple had such a calming envirnment!
