The visit to Murugan temple in Thiruchendur was simply fantastic. This temple is on the seaside. Have a dip in the sea and then visit this temple. Good sculptures around. It is a bit crowded but the place is divine and filled with positive energy. There is a small temple with Shiva lingams below the main shrine which you should... More

One of the best places I often visit as a piligrimage; several times alone and many times with family. It is at the sea shore with beatiful natural scenaries. The localites told me that Lord Muruga is protecting them. Even the Tsunamy waves could not reach Muruga temple's protective walls. It was a miracle for them. Tharakasura , by virtue... More

It is on a sea shore and stands tall. This temple is a real highlight of devotion and dedication . You can see people taking difficult penaces to please the God. The Muruga idol is adorable and you can sit and watch it for hours ( but you will not be allowed). For persons having less time and not interested... More
