The temple was constructed in 1962 on a piece of land donated by Chithira Thirunal, the last Maharaja of Travancore. Built in the Kerala style, the temple caters to Chennai’s Malayali community.

Anantha Padmanabha Swamy Temple at Adyar in Chennai is named after the renowned Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram. The main deity is Lord Vishnu who is depicted as reclining on the mythological five-headed serpent as in the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram. The sight is really captivating and we cannot stop admiring the beauty of the deity.

There is a yagashala inside the premises of the temple for conducting daily sermons. The temple has a statue of Sri Chithira Thirunal.  

There are three doors that open into the sanctum sanctorum of the temple that permit devotees to see the Lord’s head, his mighty body and his lotus feet from each door.
