This temple is very beautiful. If you are interested in ancient sculptures let the person taking you there know that you are not going to walk in and out of this place in a jiffy. Even 4 hours are not enough. Each pillar is intricately carved and has a story to tell. Get blessings from the temple elephant by placing... More

The beautifully carved pillars of Suchindarm Temple are almost same as Rameswaram Temple, that is how I felt, same corridor. Photography was not allowed inside. This Temple, to be visited must is on the way between Nagercoil & Kanyakumari.

We visited this beautiful temple on our way to kanyakumari. Lord Indra was cursed by sage Gautama and performed penance here to get relieved of the curse. Visitors are not allowed to carry anything inside except wallets. Belongings can be deposited just outside the main door of the temple for safekeeping. Men are not allowed to wear anything on the...

Its a good temple. But the priests make it feels as you are in a Shop where you have to bargain for the prasadam. You have to pay Rs 100 for the prasadam. Warning:- Do not accept any help from an unknown outsider(Even the priests) inside the temple premises, unless you have lots of money with you.

It is the temple where all the three Lords- Siva, Vishnu and Brahma gave darshan to Indiran. A good temple well maintained. You should remove your shirt, t-shirt and people are allowed only with Dhoti and Pants. It is on the way to Kanyakumari from Nagercoil and you have plenty of bus services also.
