Srinivasa Perumal Temple, Semmanchery – Connectivity

Srinivasa Perumal Temple, Semmanchery – Connectivity
The Temple is located in Semmencheri in Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) which is also known as Rajiv Gandhi Salai. Semmencheri is located between Sholinganallur and Siruseri in OMR. Srinivasa Temple Gopuram can be seen on the left side of OMR when you are proceeding towards Siruseri from Sholinganallur. Rajagopuram and other Sannidhi Gopuram can be clearly seen from OMR itself. 
A clearly visible temple name board is mounted on the Prahara walls of temple and this can be clearly seen from OMR thereby facilitating devotees to easily identify the temple. In fact, this is the only Vaishnavite temple on the all-important IT corridor over a 20 Square Kms radius - a sacred and ancient place of worship in a modern setting.
This place is well connected to Chennai by Bus (Parrys Corner (21H), T.Nagar (119G) and Saidapet (19G). There is a Bus Stop situated close to the temple (called Semmencheri Perumal Kovil Stop).
Private taxis from Thiruvanmiyur will charge about INR 500 to INR 600 for to and fro. Nearest Railway station is Thiruvanmiyur MRTS station. One can combine a visit to this temple with Nithya Kalyana Perumal (Divya Desam) on ECR (East Coast Road) and Thiru Kadal Mallai (Mamallapuram Divya Desam).
