Take a round of this huge architectural wonder. Make sure you do not miss any corner of the temple interior might be confusing sometime. Offer prayers if you wish to. Nice atmosphere. Avoid crowd.

An excellent and peaceful place to worship.Maintenance and up-keep leave much to be desired.The inside of the temle can be made brighter with more lights.The Government must take more to preserve such great temples.

One among the oldest temple which also a rare temple where the three lords of Hinduism hold a shrine together. Thanu-stands for Brahma Mal-stands for Vishnu and Ayan - stands for Shiva. It is also and architectural bliss to enjoy

Located in Suseendram, the Thanumalayan temple is very famous for its unique representation of Lord Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma together as one deity. A lesser known fact is that this temple has a few musical pillars that give different tones and notes when knocked.
