Kamakshi Amman Temple Reviews & Ratings
Good place and neatly maintained. But in day time it's very very hot and we can't walk in that hot floor. They've to made some arrangements for this. Young people are running but what about old peoples. How they walk. My mother struggled too much. And the security peoples also not allowing to sit or stand in shadow. Either you've to stand under hot sun or go out of the temple. They arranged mate also in temple. But that also very hot. You can't walk on that too. Feel same heat in that like ground. We Visited there at morning 11 AM. So better visit there before 10 or after evening.
Excellent place! Gives us peace! Crowd is usually high on weekends and on Tuesdays and Fridays! Will recommend visiting! It also comes with excellent sculptures and lighting in the evening!
A very popular and one of the best maintained temple. Goddess is very popular. It takes anywhere between 1 or 2 hrs to see her on account of heavy crowd on most days. Facilities are very good. The entire temple complex is neat and clean. Parking available our side. It is sometimes challenging to get parking close to temple. Wheelchair facilities available. Adequate drinking water available.
Good temple, to visit, there is limited lunch provided to people , you will get it if you are lucky. Temple closed between 12 to 4. Most temples have multiple entry points. Make sure you remember where you entered, 50 RS parking fee for cars. Leave slippers in the car and be prepared for the hot surface and a lengthy walk. I went on Sunday and we were done in 30 min. Divine feeling for sure.
