Kalikambal Temple, Chennai (Madras)

4.6
#8 of 57 in Historic Sites in Chennai (Madras)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Stop at Kalikambal Temple and take in its vibrantly colored, intricately sculpted entrance. Originally built closer to the shore, the temple was actually moved and rebuilt in 1640. Reportedly, Maratha emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji frequented the site to pray. Bear in mind that the temple stands in a busy central area and parking could prove very difficult.

  • Very very powerful temple must visit if ur in and around chennai
  • This temple is very old..located in thambu cherry Street in Parry's..darshan is free no token..don't visit on auspicious days like Fridays or amavasya days, temple will be very crowded and congested..There are many gods to worship in this temple, though the main deity is goddess kalikambal.. another important one is prathyankaradevi near the entrance..There are also many shops near the entrance which sell puja articles, lemon garlands, etc. Fans are there in some places inside. Prasadam is sold at Rs 10 per item. Due to its significance this place will be frequented by some politicians and celebrities. Maratha king Chatrapathi Sivaji once worshipped in this temple. Worth to go.
  • Very old temple good amman dharshan
  • Divine place. Very peaceful after worshipping goddess. Parking is a concern
