Very nice and historical temple - for a change it has all the ingredients of a typical ancient Tamil Nadu temple. Locker facility available, and no cameras allowed (-1 point for that) Gents need to take off their tops when in the temple. Dieties are nice, and you can feel the air of holiness all around.

This is a must visit place if you are planning your trip towards Kanyakumari, the southernmost tip of India. The temple is famous for its architectural excellence. This temple is known for its trimurthis (brahma,vishnu,shiva) and the hanuman statue which is carved out of a single granite block.

On our way back from Kanyakumari, we entered into Thanumalayan temple, Suchindram, which is 30 mins drive from Kanyakumari. Its almost night. Anyway we are able to get the darshan. You can find all the three gods namely Bhrama, Vishnu and Siva in one place. Also, you can see big Shree Hanuman temple inside the temple. Very nice beautiful temple.... More

Take a round of this huge architectural wonder. Make sure you do not miss any corner of the temple interior might be confusing sometime. Offer prayers if you wish to. Nice atmosphere. Avoid crowd.

An excellent and peaceful place to worship.Maintenance and up-keep leave much to be desired.The inside of the temle can be made brighter with more lights.The Government must take more to preserve such great temples.

One among the oldest temple which also a rare temple where the three lords of Hinduism hold a shrine together. Thanu-stands for Brahma Mal-stands for Vishnu and Ayan - stands for Shiva. It is also and architectural bliss to enjoy
