Kamakshi Amman Temple, Chennai Reviews

  • This place is divine. The idol is so beautifully carved that you don't want to take your eyes off the god. The place is not too far from the city and makes it a must visit. The crowd was normal and not over crowded which is usual among popular temples.

  • South India is famous for huge Goddess temples built in the ancient times. Parvati or the other half of Lord Siva resides in Kamakshi temple ,as the name suggests blessing the worshipper with all his/ her wishes. The temple is beautifully constructed and looks relatively. There are long queues to get the glimpse of the Goddess. The darshanas are though very satisfying and great . The deity emanates a powerful spiritual vibe which can be felt there. A must visit

  • Truly divine place. Be careful of having full leg covers dress for men and women. They will turn you away from the gate for non compliance. Enjoy the Beauty and carvings of the wall. Plan for a long que of about 1 hour during the weekend. Temple is closed from 12PM to 4PM. Good place to meditate inside the temple away from sanctum.

  • Nice visit I had. Went on a Sunday but the crowded lines moves fast so no need to worry. It is well maintained with all the basic amenities available inside the complex. Road is very nice if you are traveling from Bengaluru. Temple complex is very good and you find peace there.

  • Lovely historical temple but their hospitality to the devotees is quite not comfortable....I couldn't feel the divine happiness rather felt pressured until I saw The God.
