Ashtalakshmi Temple, Chennai (Madras)

Located right on the sea coast, Ashtalakshmi Temple is a religious site boasting grandiose architectural style while offering a serene atmosphere whether you’re a worshiper or not. See the temple dedicated to Lakshmi, one of the most respected Hindu goddesses, and take some time to admire the multi colored shrines representing the goddesses’ forms, such as bravery, knowledge, courage, and the rest. Going inside and climbing the steep, narrow stairs might be a challenge for smaller children and elders, but you can get a fine view just standing in front of the building. For Ashtalakshmi Temple and beyond, use our Chennai (Madras) day trip planning website to get the most from your Chennai (Madras) vacation.

  • Amazing experience of Transdence ; Fantastic views from 4th floor; great views. Temple beautifully explains 8 forms of wealth.
  • I and my family visited the temple on the New Year to get the Blessings. We choose to stand in the General Queue. It took us nearly two and half hours to get the Lords Darshan. There was hardly about 500 odd people yet the queue hardly moved. Wish the management could take the example of Ananthnabha Padmanabha where the lord is available to be viewed easily. One can easily say that there are numerous steps and difficult to move in the narrow stairs yet if organized well the temple could have more devotees and more collections. Also the blarring loudspeakers all along the queue senselessly created utmost sickness to all. Devotees just wanted to get away when they should have had good Darshan. Of course it's easy to comment then to manage but the administration can do a lot lot better.
  • Nice place to see. Ample place for parking..
  • Best Temple of Worship & Prayer,near to Sea in Chennai Capital city of Tamil Nadu(TN).
  • Pleasant place to visit .
