The Goddess is very powerful . The temple is simple in its architecture . The minus is that it is in a very busy and narrow lane in the Parry's area with very little parking space . The temple is well maintained and carries the legacy of Chatrapathi Shivaji having visited the place .

situated in the busy streets of the parrys area , this temple is a big crowd puller . the main deity is goddess kalikambal. parking your cars near the temple on weekdays is impossible as the roads are congested.

This is one of the famous worship places in Chennai and the leading roads are always crowded, i never wanted to see the lordess navigating crowded lanes and parking is a real nightmare.
