Kamakshi Amman Temple, Chennai Reviews

  • Awesome awesome awesome. Must visit. Photography not allowed inside the temple. Cant take pics inside. Please do visit.

  • Peace nd calmūüôŹūüôŹ One of famous paces to visit in Chennai as it is maintained properly. Well I hav taken zoom car so I love the journey. It's is really nice to visit this types of temple.

  • More facilities to be introduced for devotees. Holy place but crowds are not managed properly. Need more professional approach to manage the crowd

  • Temple was renewed recently and the walls and the pavements are renewed effectively and now roaming around the temple is little easier since there was a pavement around. Water for drinking and to clean our legs and hands are made available at the right side of the temple. Now most of the times all four entrences are opened up for visitors and little securities has been employed at all gates. Historical and a good and suitable place for peaceful visit.

  • This is a beautiful temple of Kanchi Kamaksha Amman. Extremely neat and clean, very well maintained. A must visit temple of Kanchipuram. Usually very crowded. All your grief and worry is sorted by the very sight of the deity. Go with a clean mind and pious heart for getting the best results.
