What sets Chennai forth is its culture and to experience an insight of the same, you must visit the temples of Chennai. The temples here are crafted with brilliant work of art and minute details that entwine to take a beautiful avatar. Architecture and decorations are other things; pilgrims visit a temple to offer prayers to the deity and in many of Chennai’s temples you will come across legends and miracles that give birth to unending faith.
One of the oldest temples of Chennai, Kapaleeswarar Temple is built in Dravidian style with an eye-catching colorful gopuram. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and has massive significance for Shavaits. Parthasarathy Temple is another significant shrine of the city and is dedicated to Lord Krishna (an incarnation of Lord Vishnu). Adeeswarar Temple, Ayyappan Temple, Kandaswamy Temple and Vadapalani Temple are few such shrines that a religious person shouldn’t miss.
