Several pilgrims and tourists visit Parthasarathy Temple yearly because of its religious significance. The Tamil word for Parathasarthy is 'Arjuna's Charioteer.' One of the city's oldest and most revered shrines is a magnificent temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu located in Thiruvallikeni or Triplicane. THINGS TO DO AT PARTHASARATHY TEMPLE: • Learn about religious significance: One of the few shrines in the nation that honors Krishna as Parthasarathy, the charioteer of Arjuna, houses statues of the three Vishnu avatars, Narasimha, Rama, and Krishna. Tiruvallikeni has the reputation of being the Southern Vrindavana due to the temple's affiliation with Krishna. In the temple, he also noted the Telliya Singar shrine. • One of the 108 Divyadesams is this beautiful religious location. The holy places known as Divyadesams, devoted to Lord Vishnu, are described in the Divya Prabandha, a significant literary work by Tamil saints or the Alvars.
