Kalikambal Temple - Review
The Kalikambal Temple is a temple dedicated to not just one, but two lords. It is here that the idols of Shri Kaligambal (Kamakshi) and Lord Kamadeswarar are worshipped. With an already picturesque location at the Parry's corner in Old: George Town, this temple with its characteristic Dravidian architecture is breath-taking to say the least.
As per history, the temple had a different location earlier, much closer to the seashore than what it is today. It is in the 16th century that it was relocated to its current location on the street parallel to a prominent financial street called the Thambu Chetty Street. Even the great Maratha warrior, Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj has worshipped this temple back in the 17th century.
As per legends, there was fierce goddess who was worshipped here, who was later replaced by the Goddess Kamakshi in the form of shanta swaroopa or the calm posture. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Chennai itinerary 1 day.

Kalikambal Temple, Chennai Reviews
Very calm, serene and soothing place. On way to main deity there is a pillar having lots of religious value -and is traditionally circumnavigated. Entry is through congested place. Besides no parking and it is one way road. So has to be planned accordingly and timed. Overall a great experience.
Very devotional place and People . staffs are really friendly and helping. There is no parking at all So we have find place to park in some other streets . There is a private parking available but it is always full. It is advisable to park vehicle near court( at your own risk) and take an auto.
One of the best temples ever visited. Brings in a lot of inner peace that cant be described. Worth visiting. Recently expanded temple complex.
One of my favourite places in Chennai. I was amazed by the mere existence of such a big temple in a tricky place like Parry's. This area is known for its small roads and congested surroundings, it's a surprise to see such a brilliantly constructed temple in the vicinity. It's a very old temple and one of the most famous places in Chennai and has huge followers from all over the city.
Very old temple. Chatrapathy Shivaji has prayed here. Powerful deity
