Vibrant and rejuvenating environment. Best coastal spot to enjoy . Its more economical , affordable and enjoyable. One of the arupadai ( six major ) temples of lord murugan. It’s ideal to stay at night and enjoy sunrise in ocean. If it possible have a short trip in steamer boat.

There are lots of shops all around to do local shopping and eatables. A very good time killer around the temple - beach and shopping! I visited the temple by evening around 5... More
