A mesmerising divine abode once visited the power of the divine keeps a believer to keep visiting often. Divine Beauty one can absorb in when the Shri Kali is seen at the early hours.

We were doing shopping of ceramic stuffs in nearby market, we came across this old temple and stepped inside to offer our prayers and pay obeisance to God. Dark and smelly, needs maintenance and lighting. Peaceful and calm inside.. totally opposite to outside busy world.

Very old temple located in buzzing Thambu Chetty Street, close to Beach Railway station. There is no rating required for a temple, as it is a place of worship. However, the maintenance needs a big boost and entrance to temple is always crowded with vendors and alms-seekers.
