This one is by the sea. The place is crowded as expected of any temples. The kids will like the elephants here. The temple is big and if you go on festive days the queues are huge.

This temple is situated very close to Sea and is close to Tuticorin Town. Early morning visit is good and you can do Archana in the complex. There is free darshan line and paid darshan line but if you are early free darshan line is good enough. Thiruchendur Murugan temple is known as the second Arupadai Veedu of Lord Muruga.... More

It is a very nice temple on the sea shore. the day I visited was a Friday in October and there was very less crowd. So we enjoyed a very good darshan. Sat down for a few minutes on the cement benches outside the temple. Inhaled the sea breeze, tasted the Sukku Coffee offered by the small vendors and bought... More

My first visit to the temple early morning was enchanting. Got the Darshan and saw the panchamrut pooja. Beautiful intricate architecture in this massive Temple is a treat. Step out and you will see waves crashing against the temple walls. One will find many miracles on the walls of the temple like no damage during the 2004 Tsunami.

This is a very beautiful temple located on the sea side. Temple is clean and well organised. The lord subramanya idol is very nice. Temple gets crowded during mornings and on special occasions. We could do multiple Darshan without much hassle. We can find so many peacocks in and around the temple, which is unique experience for me.

Nice super is a very famous temple located on the sea shore at Tiruchendur. It is believed that Lord Muruga killed demon Surapadman here. Also, there is the Valli cave, where Devi Valli hid herself from a wild elephant before Lord Muruga rescued her.

One of the six abodes of Lord Muruga. That too situated on the shores of Bay of Bengal. An ancient temple where the God is believed to have waged a war to destroy a tricky Asura that was playing cruelty to the subjects of the land. A darshan of God and a view of the sunrise and the horizon in... More

We recently visited this temple while travelling from Rameshwaram to Kanyakumari by road. This is a beautiful temple on the sea shore (one of the six holy shrines for lord subramanya). They have free as well as paid (special) darshan tickets and we went the special darshan route. We were accompanied by a priest from the temple entrance and he... More
