“An ancient temple in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2015

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.
