The Goddess of Kalikambal temple was most powerful. The reasonable requests of all the devotees were fulfilled by the sincere prayers are offered.

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.

This ancient Kali was worshipped by Adi Sankara, and the Arthameru beneath the kali statue was anointed by him. Given the fact that Adi Sankara, lived 2500 years ago, the origins of this temple are lost in the mists of time. Expect this temple to be crowded at all times. The kali is very powerful and peace descends on you... More

India's mysticism carries few ancient realities winning modern flavor. 50% of the world population can not be second class citizens. Kalikamba is divinity for the faithful to deliver us from our mundane miseries. Not an architectural beauty, peaceful bliss nevertheless.
