Aadhyanta Prabhu Temple - Madhya Kailash, Chennai
Madhya Kailash is a Hindu temple in South Chennai, located at the junction between Sardar Patel Road, Adyar and Rajiv Gandhi Salai. It is located opposite the Central Leather Research Institute and is close to the Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai.

The "Moolavar" or main deity, Venkata Ananda Vinayakar, is surrounded by shrines to Lord Siva, Surya, Devi and Vishnu. In response to the wishes of the people, there are also "Sannidhis" to Anjaneya, Swarna Bhairavar and Onpankol, though these fall outside Ganapatyam practices.

On Vinayaka Chaturthi day, the rays of the sun fall on the presiding deity, striking an auspicious note. Since Vinayaka is the form of the first sound "Om", eight bells have been installed. They represent the seven notes Sa, Ri, Ga, Ma, Pa, Da, Ni, with the eighth bell signifying the Sa that follows. In the "Mandapam" before the sanctum sanctorum is a shrine to Vinayaka’s brother Muruga.

The temple has become famous for its unique idol of "Adhyantha Prabhu", which is part Ganapathy and part Anjaneya. The right side is Ganesh and the left Hanuman. The idol was crafted after a vision of such a form was seen by one of the temple officials. In Maharashtra style, one can light the camphor to this deity himself, giving a great sense of satisfaction. Lord Vinayaka himself takes on the onus of propitiating the ancestors. Every afternoon, the priest has a bath and in his wet clothes begins the rites. He takes the Darba garb, earlier placed at the Anandavinayaka idol’s feet and goes to the shrine of Lord Vishnu. From there he takes the white rice offered to the Lord and comes to the Siva shrine. There the rice transforms into the "Pindam". The rice "Pindam" is taken from the Surya shrine and offered to the crows on a platform. People of all caste and creed can avail of this service.

Few words from Brahmanda Guruji Shri Narendra Babu Sharmaji

Visiting this Temple will reduce the effect of Rahu, Ketu, Kuja and Shani Grahas.


  1. There is one Aadyantha prabhu temple @ Yelahanka, Bangalore too.

  2. Hi Sushja,
    Can you give us the full address.

  3. I visited this temple Madhya Kailash at Adyar Chennai on the advise of Sri Narendra Babu Sarmaji of Brahmanda fame on Sashti day (25th Jan 2011). This Sri Aadhyantha Prabhu temple is unique and gives a rare insight into the two most powerful gods of our Hindu mythology and also a unique blend of Saiva and Vishnu siddhantha. The archana to this god is done between 8 am to 10.30 am and again from 4.30 to 8.15 pm. On request the temple authorities give a pamphlet which details the genesis of this idol.Indeed it gives an exhilarating experience of true meaning of LIFE like Aadhi and Antha (beginning & end). Kindly madam Sushja give us the address of the temple at Yelahanka.
