this is one of the few temples that has one form of the holy trinity - vishnu, shiva & bhrama. along with a 20ft statue of hanuman. there are also musical pillars which resonate. the stone work is exquisite.

I am sorry to say but yes I felt very uncomfortable in the temple when you take off your shirt and you body gets rubbed with some other men's body and to make things worse everybody is sweating out. I wrapped a towel around my body which I was carrying :). Temple is beautiful and big. No body asked me... More

Very ancient temple with lots of history. Close to Kanyakumari and a must visit. Note the temple timings before planning your trip.

went to visit the temple on 25th Dec but apparently due to some festival, the whole highway had got blocked with the vehicles of people coming to visit. we decided to take another route to reach the place but reached a dead-end... in the end, continued with our journey. Government: pls do something in your state to manage public places

A huge exquisitely carved temple built by four kings. The carvings are a must see. The two sets of musical pillars should be included in the Wonders of the World.

We went in the evening to skip the crowds. While the Anjaneya shrine opens at 4pm, the main shrine SthanuMalAyan (Brahma, Vishnu and Shankar in single deity) opened only at 5pm. We were able to have good and quick darshan and we were not pestered by any priests or guides (contrary to some of the reviews here). We couldn't find... More

I can write pages about this temple since I lived in this village during my childhood...The temple is a great example of South Indian Architecture. Just the sculptures on the temple tower is amazing. Musical pillars, the geometrically straight corridors, carvings on pillars, walls, ceiling and floor are all pure art in stone. Dont miss. To enter temple, Males need... More

One of the bigger temples of Tamilnadu, tucked away in a quaint little village away from the noisy cities. even the drive from Kanyakumari to this place was a feast to the eyes with lush greenery. The centuries' old temple is more managed in Kerala style (the pooja vidhanam, the current décor with kerala style brass lamps) than other TN... More
