Mangaadu Kamatchi Amman
Specialities : General  
x This is one of the most visited temples in the vicinity of Chennai especially on Sundays and Fridays. The Kamakshi Amman temple at Maangaadu is located off of the highway linking Chennai with Poonamallee and is well connected with Chennai by frequent bus service.

This temple is believed to have been in existence during the peirod of Aadi Sankaracharya.

The sanctum here enshrines Kamakshi, and a Sri Chakram. Legend has it that Kamakshi performed severe austerities in a grove of mango trees. The processional image here is referred to as Raja Rajeswari.

The sanctum and the shrine to the Utsavar are enclosed within the inner mandapam of the temple which is surrounded by a covered prakaram, enshrining other deities.

Once in a state of obscurity, the temple became well known in the 1970s and the 1980s. Much of the current structure is attributed to the renovation efforts taken in the 1980s and the 1990s.
