It is said that Chatrapati Shivaji visited this Temple and offered prayers to Kalikambal the presiding deity. Need to visit this temple to seek the blessings of the Goddess.

This was our second visit to Chennai and the Kalikambal Temple. We recommend that you tour this temple with the Storytrails "Peacock Trail" tour. It was so much more meaningful and interesting than the traditional fact driven typical tour guide approach.

One will be overawed by the atmosphere of godliness and holy presence at this temple. It is a tribute to Chennaiites that they have managed to preserve the temple almost in its original form despite the rapid pace of commercialisation all around.

Place which calms the mind and help to focus. Crowded but well managed. They allow you to sit for few minutes in front of the Goddess which is unique here.No parking place near by. Visit the Shiva temple near by.Must visit.

A beautiful one thousand year old temple in old chennai hidden among charming old shops on narrow roads. It is the center of Shakti worship. Go there for the sense of love and peace. Take a different look at chennai.
