One of the oldest temples in south india. Build several hundred years ago, legend has it that Chatrapati Shivaji visited this temple.

The kalikambal temple in Broadway is a temple of a different kind in Chennai and South India. Though the architecture is dravida, the temple's layout is not as found in other temples in this region. The abishekam turmeric has positive impact on couples who are longing to have a child. The old temple was believed to be located near the shore and was later replaced to the current location. Shivaji, the great maratha emporer, has visited this temple in 1667.

This ancient temple has its own aura, a strong sense of religious attachment to the deity Amman. The management is clean and they allow everyone at least a minute of sit down praying opportunity without any tickets/payments. Must visit again to fulfill our vow.

This is the first temple I visited with my hubby immediately after our engagement... The alakaram they make there for the Goddess will be really good... I like the temple very much, it is located in a congested area though... :)

This was our second visit to Chennai and the Kalikambal Temple. We recommend that you tour this temple with the Storytrails "Peacock Trail" tour. It was so much more meaningful and interesting than the traditional fact driven typical tour guide approach.
