One of the oldest temples of Chennai. This goddess was worshiped by Chatrapathi Shivaji of Maharashrtra. Very powerful Kalikambal.

The temple is located in the interrior of the Parrys corner area of Chennaii city. Small temple but with heritage value. Local people say that the marath warrior Shivaji worshipped here once. Visiting on fridays will be ideal

Vowed to return to this temple when visited in 2008. Brought my son to fulfil the vow by offering ponggal and providing annathanam during lunch. Built in 1647, the temple doesn't charge for any archanai and gives all devotees to sit and pray to the ambal peacefully. Helpful staff.

Kalikambal(kamakshi) temple has been renovated few months back. The Devi is believed to be powerful and by sincere prayer devotees are blessed with their requests fulfilled. Shivaji, the Maratha warrior, is supposed to have worshipped here. It is located on Thambu Chetty Street or can be reached by road from behind GPO, opp. Beach Railway Station.

people throng to this comparatively small temple, but not without reason. A must visit place, where the Lordess Kali, in her 'Shanth Roop' speaks to one and all visiting with faith
