The temple is easily accessible on Thiruvanthpuram - Kanya kumari highway. Beautiful architecture! The musical pillars are unique. Hanumanji statue exudes power. Beware the holy men and touts in abundance. The sanctum sanctorum is closed from 12-5. Nobody tells you till they have extracted all the money from you!

It is a Brahma-Vishnu-Mahesh temple along with a huge statue of Lord Hanuman. Male devotees are supposed to take off their vest (Baniyan) and shirt and go bare chest. Kindly do not carry your camera as they will deposit it at the entrance and then ask for some money to keep it.
