Could feel the bliss all around the temple. Felt the power and presence of the Goddess in every part of the temple. The building still holds the ancient structure and the ambiance also is like the ancient days.

It is said that Chatrapathi Shivaji visited this temple many decades ago to pay his respects to Kalikambal. I have visited this temple numerous times. Tuesdays and Fridays are when its most crowded. Suggest you get down at parrys corner and take a cycle / auto rickshaw to the temple.

This is one of the oldest temple in Chennai you must visit during your stay. Situated in the oldest part of town (George Town) Mother Kali is in smiling form and not in the Angry form.
