Kalikambal Temple, Chennai (Madras)

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit Kalikambal Temple and other attractions in Chennai (Madras) using our Chennai (Madras) vacation route planner.
