We took a taxi from Kovalam to Cape Comorin, and on the way back the taxi stopped at this temple. It turned out that Cape Comorin was a little bit of a disappointment, but this temple made the whole journey worthwhile. I had to remove my shirt and wear a sort of sheet round my legs (because I had shorts... More

Uniqueness of this temple lies in the fact that here Lord Vishnu, Brahma and Mahesh are in one idol. So, for believers this is certainly a place worth visiting. However, if expecting to see some salient or imposing architecture then that's not the case. Architecture or temple building is good but if you have seen other famous temples before reaching... More

Unique because the temple has a deity - SHIVA VISHNU BRAHMA as a single deity.Men should enter bare chested but there is no dress code for women unlike trivandrum temple. The temple premises are clean except near the hanuman statue where the offering of butter makes the area slippery. The vibhuti and chandan are given on small plantain leaves unlike... More

This temple is very beautiful and is very well designed with minute attention to detail. There are countless samples of high quality ancient Indian art and stories to go with each one of them. Only irritant is that you can't take camera inside, but otherwise it's a must visit place in Kanyakumari

Huge temple. Had the fortune of praying there on 21.04.2013. The presiding deity of Thanu Malayan, has a face of Lord Brahma, thereafter Siva and finally Lord Vishnu with his sepent. A tall Hanuman is also there. Everybody visiting Kanyakumari must pay obeisance at this temple.
