This temple, modeled along the lines of the Thiruvananthapuram Anantha Padmanabha Swamy, is located in the heart of the city. The Moola Swamy can be seen through three doors, signifying preservation (the Lord is seen preserving/protecting Mahadeva, creation (Lord Brahma emerges from the Lord's naval) and destructin/moksha (the feet of the Lord is considered the destiny of all living beings)....

I visited this temple on the most important day of the hindu calendar ie Vaikuntha ekadasi. The temple was adorned with flowers and the arrangements for managing the crowds was excellent. We had a good darshan. The Lord is in a sleeping posture here.

The temple I have been visiting from the 1960s. It is a clean well kept and maintained temple, The temple has been adding more sanctums and even a marriage hall. They conduct homams on payment - which is very reasonable.

A well maintained and serene temple, in which Maha Vishnu is posed in Anantha shainam posture. Vaishnavite style of poojas is done.

This temple is my favourite temple in the city. It is located in the heart of the city in a nice residential area. The temple premises are clean and very well maintained. Although it can get crowded at certain times, a peaceful darshan is guaranteed almost always. The devotee is not rushed to leave especially if you visit on weekday... More

Lord Vishnu is in the 'Ananthasayanam' pose similar to the famous Trivandrum Padmanabhaswamy, in this quiet temple in Adyar. The Lord is beautifully decorated and adorned with flowers and jewels. Their brahmotsavam celebrations are done in a very grand manner.

This is the temple closest to my house in Adyar, and my mother has been going there for many years. It started as a very simple temple, though now its become quite big. They frequently organize rath yatras and also are a venue for wedding ceremonies.
