Kalikambal Temple, Chennai

4.7
Stop at Kalikambal Temple and take in its vibrantly colored, intricately sculpted entrance. Originally built closer to the shore, the temple was actually moved and rebuilt in 1640. Reportedly, Maratha emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji frequented the site to pray. Bear in mind that the temple stands in a busy central area and parking could prove very difficult.

  • One of the oldest temple in Chennai. We could feel the vibe when we enter sanctum. Mostly crowded. I am visiting this temple almost for 3 decades. I experience the vibe whenever I visit this temple.
  • Located near washermanpet metro. Easily accessible but narrow roads. Reaching by two Wheeler, auto cab preferred. Quite and peaceful place inside a crowded market area. Visit and get blessed...
