Right from Grand parents era we have visited the temple. If you believe there is an eternal power above you means you can realize here. Whatever you pray in front of Ambal for sure you wish will be granted. The Great warrior Chatrapathi Sivaji visited the temple.

Tucked inside a very crowded narrow street, this temple is very historic and has been there for hundreds of years. The great emperor Chatrapathi Shivaji visited this temple some 300 years ago to seek the blessings of goddess Kali.
