Create an itinerary including Kalikambal Temple
Stop at Kalikambal Temple and take in its vibrantly colored, intricately sculpted entrance. Originally built closer to the shore, the temple was actually moved and rebuilt in 1640. Reportedly, Maratha emperor Chhatrapati Shivaji frequented the site to pray. Bear in mind that the temple stands in a busy central area and parking could prove very difficult.

  • Creates peace in mind and astonishing power of goddess kaalikambal gives victory in all aspects for her devotees. I argue people who want successful life pray her get blessings. Temple allows all the devotees to sit in front of her and pray.
  • Best temple i ever visited they let devotees sit in front of main goddess inside for few minutes to get proper view. Thanks to temple management they manage crowd well. Specifically one temple employees ask ladies in sign language to stop unwanted chatings & phone talks and concentrate on the goddess. Hats off to that person 👮‍♂️👍
