Ashtalakshmi Temple, Chennai (Madras)

(4.3/5 based on 170 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.
