Sri Seshadri, Madambakkam

A devotee of Sri Seshadri Swamigal, has built a Temple at Madambakkam, near Tambaram, Chennai, and has named it Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Brindavnam Trust.

"A Universal Shrine at Madampakkam near Tambaram, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. Dedicated to the Mother Goddess in her form as the Maha Meru as per the ancient Sri Vidya tradition, to 18 Siddha Purushas masters of infinite enlightment and to the Sathguru the Universal Temple is today a temple of peace and solace to hundreds of disciples from varied classes, castes, religions and nationalities."

Sri Seshadri Swamigal
was a proponent of Sri Vidya and a devotee of Sri Kamakshi whose main Temple is located at Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu. His ashram at the base of Arunachala at Tiruvannamalai is located a stone's throw from the ashram of Sri Ramana Maharshi and in fact their lives interacted in many ways.

As to the Temple dedicated to Sri Seshadri at Madampakkam it certainly seems uniquely interesting - you can find out more about it at this link.
