The three deities are in a single form called Sthanumalayam. All men have to enter only after removing their shirts and vests, and the women have to be either in a sari or salwar kameez. You have...

Beautiful architecture. Powerful temple. We were not disturbed by anyone. One of the only places where 3 gods are together. Check the net for details. Visitors to Nagercoil must see as it is only 7 kms from Nagercoil.

The Panda's made it a not so good time at this temple. We were haggled by the Panda's into using their service which we didn't want to use. The temple is beautiful and well built. However, the experience with the Panda's who kept offering their service without seeking it made it very annoying.
