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.

My visit with my family for my younger son's ear borring and mottai was great experience. Swami Darshanam was divine and searshore bath was too god. Near by hotels and lodges prices were reasonable. Coming to the other aspects of the temple maintenance and discipline is very poor. Every where it is money oriented. Almost 80% of poojaris are corrupted... More

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
