Kamakshi Amman Temple, Chennai Reviews - Write a Review

  • 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.

  • A powerful divine temple of God Kamakshi.After recent kumbabisheham and renovation, this temple looks very neat tidy and spot clean and looks beautiful as well as well maintained. As per tradition and as the temple is maintained by Kanchi mutt, there is no special dharshan tickets available here. But as usual our people find many ways to seek back door entry in to the sanctorium jumping the queue. .

  • Absolutely brilliant place to visit. Temple premises is very good. One must visit the place for ammavari darshanam and get blessings.

  • Ancient temple. Well-maintained, Neat and clean. It was crowded when I went, but the queue moved fast. We were not pushed. We had a good darshan.

  • Nice Temple.. Clean & Tidy, Well maintained. Have stone benches around the temple to sit & relax.
