In the Triplicane Parthasarathy temple, Lord Vishnu gives darshan as Krishna, the charioteer of Arjuna in the Kurukshetra War. This is the only Krishna temple where Lord appears with the moustache of a Sarathi (charioteer). He is also seen with His whole family, Sri Rukmini (consort) nearby, Sri Mahalakshmi in Chest, brother Balarama (elder brother) to his right and Satyagi to the left, son Pradyumna and grandson Aniruddha. This is the temple out of the 108 Divya Desams of Vishnu, where 3 generations of his family are displayed.
