One of the best shrine location in Chennai,in western part of chennai.
You can visit any day,as temple is good for offering prayers.
Do not forget to to tank(pond) at the rear entrance..(Buy some items outside to feed fish/goat etc.
Also do not miss nearby Karumari amman temple in Thiruverkadu

One of the oldest temples in Chennai...Very powerful goddess...Located within 10 kms from porur...Temple was well maintained...A speciality in this temple is a Sri Chakram which is very rare in our country...This Chakram is placed in karuvarai and kumkum abhisegam is performed to this Chakram...Very divine and peaceful place...

A Devine experience that can only be experienced and cannot be explained.
The beautiful small kamakshi Amman adorned a brilliant aquamarine blue (probably a blue diamond) that was visible from a distance made her even more beautiful.
It is believed that in this place, Amman stood on a needle head and prayed to lord Shiva.
One can buy an INR 50 special dharshan ticket to avoid long queues.
We hired our favourite, trusted, reliable and reasonably priced driver Mr Umapathy (Dhanush Travels 00 91 94442 86178 or +91 81486 81661) to reach this destination.
We also used this agent to go all around Tamilnadu this time and Kerala, Karnataka and Andrapradesh in the past. Booking well in advance is recommended.
