3) Iskcon Temple:

The Iskcon is a worldwide religious movement for devotion towards Lord Sri Krishna. The Iskcon temple in ECR, Chennai is one of the biggest shrines for the deity in Chennai, and one of the biggest Iskcon temples around the world. The temple houses the deities, Lord Krishna, alongside Radharani and their friends Lalita, Lord Chaitanya, Lord Jagannath, Baladeva, and Subhadra inside three teak-wood alters which are one of a kind. These deities are sourced from Rajasthan and Odisha.

The temple visit is rejuvenating because of its calm and sanctity filled atmosphere. In addition to this temple, you can also visit the small Matsyanarayana Temple which is nearby.
