For those tourists who are visiting Chennai and are inclined towards visiting religious destinations, the Raghavendra Temple should be among the top places to visit on their list. This temple was founded on the teachings on one of Hindu’s most prominent saints, called Sri Guru Raghavendra Swami, who came from a place called Manthralaya in Andhra Pradesh. The temple is a very popular tourist attraction as well as a very important religious pilgrimage destination which is visited by a large number of devotees. One great attraction is an activity in the temple wherein visitors get to see three different, greatly decorated chariots (called “Rathas”) which are made using sandalwood, silver and gold respectively and are drawn all around the main temple by elephants in a stellar display of obeisance to the presiding deities. Tourists who are planning on visiting this place should not miss out on this event and so must make sure that visiting Raghavendra Temple is a priority on their list of places to visit.
