This temple is situated around 15 Kms from Kanyakumari. The temple's priests are extremely cunning and money minded. They cooked up a story for every single god and architecture and tried looting a lot of money. Beware of these fellows.

This temple at Suchindram is off Kanyakumari and one needs to have a cab or car to visit it. But the visit here is worth it to see the history & architecture of a beautiful temple. It has a pond in its outer premises housing a small temple that renders the architecture more beauty. The gopuram is huge as is... More

Rare to see the trimurthies in a lingam. as per the puranas bramha vishnu and siva form the upper,middle and lower parts of the siva lingam here. Old and historic temple. You can plan this on your way to Kanyakumari. Anajneya statue is another attraction here. The temple pond is big and gives you a devotional feeling.

On the way from Kanyakumari to Kovalam is this temple with white Gopura which can be seen from a distance and its facade has several deities. The temple gets its name from the Trimurti, Sthanu (Shiva) - Mal (Vishnu) - Ayan (Brahma). There are 4 musical pillars carved out of a single granite. You will not believe it, but it... More

We visited this place as our part of Trivendrum to Kanyakumari in the month of October 2015. I was told that gents have to take out shirt ( it is okay for me as i construed it must be temple ritual). As I entered, I pass a stall and the person there said I have to tie "Lungi"(Indian sarong). Then... More
