Ashtalakshmi Temple, Chennai (Madras)
(4.4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If your mother has made you learn the Ashtalakshmi Strotam, you must and must visit this place. very clam environment. 
  • Temple is good but too many staircase steps to worship each god amongst 8 lakshmi, we have to climb up. feeling too tired. Need more energy in the morning to visit. 
  • The temple is on sea side. Good construction and steps takes you around the temple to see different incarnations of goddess Lakshmi.

  • The temple was built by my grandfather S.Devalingam Sthapathy , valavanur, villupuram dist... I feel really proud of him on seeing your comments appreciating the temple's architecture...
  • To get the grace of Asta Lashmis visit this temple, a small and beautiful temple. Heavy rush is there on week ends.
  • uperb temple on the shore of besant nagar beach.
  • Temple is good. But everyone is money minded and priest behave like businessmen
  • Spiritual Temple located on the sea shore. Nice mark for Hindus!!
