The Kali Bari Temple is located in the Umapathy Street Extension, West Mambalam, Chennai. The temple is around 3 km from the T. Nagar bus terminus. The temple can also be approached from the Ashok Nagar side.


The Kali Bari Temple is dedicated to Divine Mother Shakti as Bhavatarini Kali. This temple is a miniature replica of the famous Dakshineswar Kali Temple near Kolkata.

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.
