The Kalikambal Temple is located in the Thambu Chetty Street, Parrys, Chennai. The temple can be reached from either the Broadway bus terminus or the Chennai Beach railway station. It is around 2 km away from either of these places.


The Kalikambal Temple is dedicated to Divine Mother Shakti as Kalikambal and Sri Shiva as Kamateshwarar.

Chatrapati Shivaji visited this temple to seek the blessings of Goddess Kalikambal.

On the 1st May of every year (since 1985), Sri Kalikambal Kodai (summer) Abhishekam is performed (from 10AM to 1PM) to the Goddess by Kodai Maha Abhisheham committee praying for enough rains during the year all over the country.

Devi Kalika was worshipped fervently by Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa at Dakshineshwar, near Kolakata.

Dakshineswar Kali Temple:

The Dakshineswar Kali Temple near Kolkata was built by Rani Rasmani following a dream she had when she was about to start her pilgrimage to Varanasi. The main temple in this temple complex is the Bhavatarini Kali temple. Apart from this there are twelve Shiva temples representing the twelve Jyotirlingams and a Radha Kanta temple. Dakshineswar is the place of sadhana of Sri Ramakrishna who was initially a priest of this temple. Sri Ramakrishna's intense longing for God-Realization resulted in the Divine Vision and subsequent spiritual unfoldment in this place.
