Kalikambal Temple Tours
About Kalikambal Temple, Chennai
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.

This temple is very old..located in thambu cherry Street in Parry's..darshan is free no token..don't visit on auspicious days like Fridays or amavasya days, temple will be very crowded and congested..There are many gods to worship in this temple, though the main deity is goddess kalikambal.. another important one is prathyankaradevi near the entrance..There are also many shops near the entrance which sell puja articles, lemon garlands, etc. Fans are there in some places inside. Prasadam is sold at Rs 10 per item. Due to its significance this place will be frequented by some politicians and celebrities. Maratha king Chatrapathi Sivaji once worshipped in this temple.
