Muruga Temple which we used to worship every year. Situated on the sea coast and a beautiful location of the temple we hardly see in some other places.

Really felt satisfied on Darshan of Lord Murugan. But there was huge rush which was beyond imagination. But it is very difficult for person coming from far flung areas of North India to have Darshans of Murugan as no body understands hindi nor there are any people to respond in English. Very difficult it is to reach the sanctum sanctorum.... More

Its a good temple which is near to seashore. We got a good darshan in this temple. Who ever visit this temple has to see the pancha lingam which is behind the lord muruga. The entrance is on the left side of the main shrine. The entrance will be like a small cave in side that we can see the... More

A wonderful place to workshop and to feel the Lord Murugan. Once you come here you will surely have a hope that all problems will be solved by him. Don't forget to take bath in the holy temple well and the sea nearby.
