Ashtalakshmi Temple

One of the most noticeable landmarks on Elliot’s Beach in the Chennai suburb of Besant Nagar, Ashtalakshmi Temple is a colorful temple devoted to Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity. The multi-tier structure, covered completely in vibrant carvings and decorative elements, depicts the goddess in each of her eight primary forms -- as giver of wealth, offspring, success, bravery, food, prosperity, courage and knowledge.

Since all eight idols of Lakshmi are located on the building’s exterior, even non-Hindus can climb along the four levels to get a closer look. Keep in mind that the steps are rather steep and narrow.
