About Karukathamman Temple
Located on the East Coast Road in between Chennai and Puducherry, Karukathamman Temple is one of the most important historical temples of Mahabalipuram. Goddess Karu Katha Amman is worshipped here whose statue appears to be a sitting position where she can be seen holding a lot of weapons in her hands and also pressing the demon under the feet of her.
This temple is a small one compared to the other ones of Mahabalipuram. However, it boosts your spiritual energy a lot once you visit this place. It is a very famous, old and traditional temple which was renovated recently. One can always feel the cool breeze blowing here because of its location near the sea.
