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 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 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.

  • Ancient temple . Very powerful. There is no car parking. So park your car in NSC Bose road, opp to high court and you can reach by auto from NSC Bose road.

  • The famous temple of Chennai of amma devi Sri Kaaliamman. Located in Broadway town opposite to Chennai high court. Maa Kaali is called as Sri Kaalikaambal here and blessing the devotees with a soft, kind, smiling face. This temple is in existence even when Chennai city has been built. It is not just ancient but also has connections with many historical events. Maharaj chatrapati Shivaji has visited this temple before crowning. Visit the temple and get blessed

  • In 1677 Chatrapati Sivaji visited this temple...Viswa Karma caste can register for marriage in this temple's chathiram @rs 150. Toilet facilities also available..at the down of temple's chathiram...walk-able distance from beach Station..need to use subway from beach Station... Vishwakarma caste
