Kamakshi Amman Temple, Chennai Reviews

  • Very beautiful temple and very well managed . Very beautifully preserved. Really loved to be there. It's easily accessible from kanchipuram railway; take a share auto from there. It'll cost around Rs.20 per person.

  • A famous historic and powerful place of worship for Hindus. But no tariff boards are displayed. Bribing is easiest way to get satisfaction. Nice place for meditation.

  • Wonderful Temple. Fantastic infrastructure. Good facilities available in and around temple. Peaceful environment.

  • Well maintained temple with good administration. It is located centre of the city, so easy to reach from anywhere from the city. Parking is the main problem in front of temple there is no big parking area, so plan your parking before enter the temple. Free shoe maintainance zone is available at front of temple. Well maintained very deep bond is plus of this temple.

  • The face of Kamakshi Amman in Kanchipuram is seen only once in 15 years. Mother's face is always covered with flowers. Zoom in mother's eyes, which is like a normal human being. You can see and if possible, then share it with other devotees so that they can also see.
