Dedicated to Hindu Lord Vishnu, Anantha Padmanabha Swamy Temple has a statue of the lord in a reclining posture on the five-headed serpent and worshipping the Shiva lingam. This is quite similar to the idol placed in Padmanabha Swamy Temple of Thiruvananthapuram. The sight is quite captivating and one cannot stop admiring the beauty of the deity. Built in 1962, the temple boasts of beautiful South-Indian architecture and is highly revered by Chennai’s Malayali community.

To view the marvel, there are three doors inside the temple. They are constructed in such a way that you can see the Lord’s head, his mighty body and his lotus feet from each door.
