This temple is located at Mangadu, very near to Poonamallee. This is different from Kamakshi Amman Temple Kanchipuram. This temple is said to be more than 2000 years old...This is the holy place where Kamakshi Amman performed severe penance standing on one leg before Her wedding with Lord Ekambareswarar in Kancheepuram.
You can reach this place by bus from anywhere in Chennai... Otherwise take a Ola or Uber Cab...
Devotees of this Goddess choose "Aru Vazhipadu" (continuous six weeks prayer) to get their prayers answered. We can choose any particular day of the week, most auspicious days being Tuesday or Friday. On this day we have to do Archanai to the Goddess with Coconut and 2 lemons. One lemon being returned and the same has to be kept in our Pooja room. The next week this lemon has to be offered to Goddess and a new lemon being given... so on... This is being done for 6 weeks. On the 7th week, we have to offer Milk to the Goddess and the same to be distributed to the devotees.. By doing this, your prayers for anything like Marriage, job etc will be fulfilled. I used to go this temple very often.
The temple is neatly maintained. Queue system is good. On Tuesdays and Fridays rush is more. You can have special tickets of Rs.20 or 50 for a quick darshan.
