One of the old temples of North Chennai. Goddess Kalikambal is kindness personified and blesses her devotees ever with a smiling face. Chatrapathi Shivaji had visited this temple and had taken Goddess Kalikambal's blessings.

This temple dedicated to Goddess Kalikambal and Lord Kamateswarar is said to have been built in AD 1678. It is understood that the fierce form of Goddess that existed earlier was made into a calm posture. People throng to this place in hundreds everyday in the belief that prayers here would relieve them of their difficult times.
