Peaceful walk. Comfortable free dharsan within 20 minutes. People enjoy taking bath in sea aswell well.Poojaris were very kind. Nobody pushed the crowd..Could go around the temple freely with sense of satisfaction.

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 one of the six arupadai veedu of Sri Muruga Perumal and the only arupadai veedu situated along the seashore. Before visiting the temple, one must take bath in the sea and again bath oneself in the Nalikinaru(near the temple) Urchava murthy's face was corrupted due to prolonged exposure to salt water. Legend is that the dutsch tried to... More

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
