    Best example of Dravidian architecture and art.
    It is a shame that as non-Hindus were were told we were not allowed to enter the temple. We walked around the premises and of course got close to the gopuram. Amazing design and elaborate theater of characters and figures. It was also interesting to see and observe at work the flower merchants, people buying fruits and flower garlands for the offerings to gods.

    Don't leave Chennai without visiting this temple.
    Had been to Chennai several times in the past but could manage to visit this magnificent temple only last week. The temple is as fascinating as its history. The temple architecture is lovely and you need to spend some time to look at the carvings on the gopurams as well the inside of the temples. Special darshan tickets are priced only 50/ but there was no need as even otherwise you could have the darshan at all three temples easily. The parking around the temple is a little tricky as the space is limited but after a round or two you can manage.

The Kapaleeshwar Temple in Chennai is a magnificent example of Dravidian architecture. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, its vibrant gopuram, intricately carved pillars, and the sacred tank contribute to its spiritual ambiance. The colorful sculptures and the unique architectural style make it a must-visit for those interested in cultural and religious heritage.
