  • Visited the Holy shrine on 27 th March 2018. As per the notice printed and pasted the temple is supposed to open at 6 am. The Priest came at 6.30 and after his initial formalities opened the gates at 6.45 am. Every where you cAn see the small oil lamps and oil strain all over. Water stagnant and risky to walk round. Unhygienically kept, a temple of great importance and the way to the temple is I’ll kept. Full of pot holes and camel ride to reach the place. Car parking charges were duly collected without maintaining the place. Sad experience to see the extremely poor condition of the temple. Not sure what the Government is doing.
  • Historical background. Famous by its name. Powerful goddess.
  • The mythology says that Kali was earlier at the Natraja temple. But Natraja also wanted to stay there and they decided to have the dance competition. The winner will stay at the Natraja temple. Devi lost to Shiva. And she moved out to Thillai Kali temple.
  • Every thing is money here... If you want to see goddess near we have to pay. Even munnum from god is money
  • Kali here is very powerful and looks magnificent and decorated with kum kum she looks red, angry. Must to see in Chidambaram
