Gayatri Devi Temple in Chennai

It is rare to find a temple for Gayatri in South India. In Selaiyur, near Tambaram, the southern outskirts of Chennai, there is a small temple for Gayatri.

Gayatri is usually depicted with five heads and ten arms. However, in this temple, she is depicted with single head and two arms. She holds Vedas in her left arm and kamandalu in her right arm. She is seated on white swan.

It's a small temple managed by a trust from Haridwar. It is called as Gayatri Shakti Peetham. It is located near Air Force Quarters in Varadarajan Nagar of Selaiyur. The temple maintains a calm atmosphere.

Happy travelling.
