Ved Vyasa Temple of Chennai

You could find the temples of Ved Vyasa in Uttar Pradesh state of India. But in Tamil Nadu, that too in Chennai, there is a temple for Ved Vyasa. Do you know about this rare temple?

In Sembakkam area near Tambaram, Ved Vyasa Tapovanam is located. It was constructed in 1998 CE. Located in a peaceful locality, the Tapovanam has a big meditation hall and altar for performing homam.

The sanctum enshrines Maharishi Ved Vyasa. This is perhaps the only temple of Vyasa in Chennai. The outer walls of the sanctum have the attractive stucco images of all the four Vedas. The personified forms of Vedas have the animal faces. They are all found with their respective consorts.

Happy travelling.
