Close to Marina Beach, yet another architectural wonder from the 8th century can be part of the itinerary. An intricate pyramid-shaped rajagopuram (dome) stands prominently and is the main feature of the temple. As anecdotes go, the British were unable to pronounce the original name, Thiriallikeni, and rechristened it Triplicane.

I went to Sri Parthasarathy Temple. This Hindu Vaishnavite temple Parthasarathy is primarily dedicated to Lord Krishna, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, and is counted among the 108 divyadesams or sacred abodes of Lord Vishnu. It is great place to go.

This is a very busy and charming temple. Good carvings and statuary and the local area is peppered with many small merchants. They have a small restaurant attached that is well worth a stop.
