Ashtalakshmi Temple, Chennai

4.5
Located right on the sea coast, Ashtalakshmi Temple is a religious site boasting grandiose architectural style while offering a serene atmosphere whether you’re a worshiper or not. See the temple dedicated to Lakshmi, one of the most respected Hindu goddesses, and take some time to admire the multi colored shrines representing the goddesses’ forms, such as bravery, knowledge, courage, and the rest. Going inside and climbing the steep, narrow stairs might be a challenge for smaller children and elders, but you can get a fine view just standing in front of the building.

  • Ashtalakshmi Temple, a delightful and soft coloured temple complex, is located in Besant Nagar, in the South Indian state of Chennai. The temple complex is built a few meters away from the Besant beach on the coast of the gorgeous Bay of Bengal. Ashtalakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth and Knowledge resides here and blesses everyone who visits the temple to offer their prayers with a clean soul. Soak in the divine ambience of the temple on the scenic coast of Bay of Bengal and observe the colourful and intricate tiers on the shrines. The serenity is unquestionable and sure to calm jittery nerves of the pilgrims and devotees. Apart from locals, you can also witness tourists flocking in from different parts of the world to enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of the temple.
  • A peaceful sacred temple dedicated specifically to the Goddess Lakshmi.. Lord Vishnu is also worshipped here.. Temple located near the sea shore adding even more attraction to the temple.. Very peaceful place to spend the devotional time with family.. Loving it..
