Parthasarathy Temple, Chennai
About Parthasarathy Temple
Parthasarathy was the name given to Lord Krishna during the Mahabharata. Parthasarathy means, the ‘Chariot Rider’. This temple was originally built by the Pallavas in the 8th century and was later expanded by other dynasties. But the major contribution came from the Cholas and later from the Vijayanagara Kings during the 16th century.
The idol here is carved out with a lot of detailing and authenticity. It has a moustache like the chariot rider had then, and the scars made on him by the arrows during the war have been nicely depicted.
