The main shrine inside the temple is of Parthasarathy or Venkata Krishna and the secondary shrine is of Vedavalli Thayaar, with that of Narasimha and Ranganatha.
The temple has incarnations of Lord Vishnu in his four forms namely Narasimha, Rama, Varaha and Krishna. It also has shrines which were built during the rule of Cholas and Vijayanagara Kings. An exquisite feature of the temple is the colored gopuram. There are two gopurams within the temple one of which is facing east and the other is facing west. The intricately carved pillars of the temple are sure to leave one spellbound.
The water tank situated within the temple is considered holy and sacred because it is believed that Goddess Lakshmi was born to sage Bhrigu in the form of Vedavalli. The Sri Parthasarathy Temple also celebrates a floral festival from mid February to mid March. This festival is held at the water tank situated within the premises of the temple.
Sri Parthasarathy Temple is thus a spectacular depiction of history, tradition and art of Indian history collated together and is an amazing tourist attraction in Chennai.
