“A temple you may visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

A silent place, very near to the sea, few hundred meters away from the shore. People with spiritual value can visit this place. The structure is similar to the one in Puri and Orissa. Pooja is done by Pandit. Once you enter the temple, on the left water taps have been provided for washing your hands and legs before entering the sannadhis. Every sannidhi has been provided the walking path to avoid walking on the grass.The Jagannath Temple is located in Reddy Kuppam Road, Kanathur, Chennai. The temple around 1 km away from the main road (ECR Road) and comes after the Mayajaal bus stop.Get down in Kanathur bus stand in ECR Road. Opposite to Maayajal is a roadside fish market. Take that road and on the first right you will find the sign board directing to the temple

“Nice, peaceful place...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

First of all its great to have a Jaganath Temple in Chennai. The architecture is simple but beautiful. Its a very calm and peaceful place. Every evening during 6.30- 7.00 "aarti" takes place which reminds us of the abode of Lord Jaganath Temple, Puri...

The temple is very well maintained and the priests and trust people must be congratulated for a commendable job..

“One with different architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

The temple is entirely different in architecture and most calm place. You have the god and goddess similar to poori temple. They have a fish tank with lot many fishes where you can feel the fish spa experience free of cost.

“Replica of Puri Jaganath”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

I was amazed to see the temple at chennai. It gives you the feeling that you went to the Puri Jagannath temple itself. Very calm place allows you to maintain your peace and medidate. This place is in Kanathur,off ECR Road.
