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.

A very old and famous Temple in the heart of Chennai close to the Madras High court and beach station. It is said Shivaji once visited this temple. A must visit Temple for Hindu Pligrims and devotees.
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.
