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.

They allow camera and phones inside, however photography is prohibited.. they only allow Hindus in the temple, being western Vaishnav devotees, you should be fine

Yes. The Maha Samprokshanam took place recently and the main deity can be worshipped now! This happens once in 12 years.
