After a period of nearly 2 years and 2 months gap I again visited One of the Arupadai Veedu Murugan Temple even during a busy Office Schedule and after visited the TIRUTTANI and Swamy Malai Temples. This temple is located nearly 650 km South of Chennai and approximately 60 km east of Tirunelveli City, where you can reach easily by train, bus or car. The nearest Domestic airport is MADURAI eventhough Tuticorin Airport is nearby but not having that much frequency of the flight. Nearest International airport is TIRUCHCHIRAPALI. The temple is on the Shore of Bay of Bengal. A must to visit temple.

Those who plan to worship Panja lingam,better to take 200 special ticket and request guard after worshiping lord Murugan to know the path.Its located on the adjacent side of lord murugan statue.If you missed to notice the way -too difficult to enter the way leads to Panja lingam.

Tiruchendur is one of the famous temples for lord Subhramanya. One of the six sacred abodes of lord muruga as per legend,
this is the most celebrated temple in south.Famous for the soora samharam festival, people make it a point to visit it atleast once every year.
As per astrology, it is believed that navagrahas (nine planets) workshipped lord muruga here.So workshipping here helps to get the blessings of all the gods and removes evil effects of any planetary transits.
It has a beautiful serene beach and the place vibrates with energy from the pilgrims. Try visiting the panchalingas located in small cave behind the main deity.Also there is a small cave near the beach in temple premises for goddess valli, where she is supposed to have hidden to escape from Lord ganesha who came in the form of elephant.
Best time to visit is during afternoons(2.00 - 3.00pm) when it is not crowded much and also at around 8.00 - 9.00 pm to keep away from agents and the free entry queue moves fast during this timings.
The temple closes at 9.00 pm and is open from 5.00 am.It is not closed any time in-between like other temples.

Thiruchendur Murugan Temple is one of the most esteemed religious places of south India. Located right on the beach of Tuticorin District, it attracts millions of devotees over the year paying respect to the in-house deity of Lord Murugan, the Tamil version of Lord Kartikeya. The temple has a very interesting history rooted in the legend of Lord Murugan's first battle, which was also the purpose of his birth. The temple hosts a number of festivals throughout the year when devotees can make offerings to the god, the most important and popular one being Skanda festival during October-November marking the victory in the battle of Thiruchendur. It is one of the few temples in India which has various forms and avatars of both Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva together. Being located within 200 metres of the sea, it is a miracle that the temple premise is never flooded - not even during the Tsunami

As described in the Skanda Purana, the demon king Surapadma, blessed with Shiva's boon that none but his son can kill him, unleashed torture over everyone living. Devastated, the gods begged Lord Shiva to save them. This led to the birth of Lord Murugan - born of fire sparks and brought up by the goddess of earth. At a battle at Thiruchendur at Tuticorin, he defeated Surapadma and killed him, and after that worshipped his Lord father, Shiva at this very spot
Originally believed to be a stone structure cut out of the hills, in later years it was renovated and rebuilt with granite. The locally found red sandstone was used for the foundation of the temple, from which the place gets the name 'Senthur' meaning red region.

The Raja Gopuram - the very ornate and main doorway of any South Indian temple which acts as an entrance into the temple premise is situated on the western side. The nine-storeyed, 137 feet long and 90 feet wide elaborate structure called Mela Gopuram rises over everything else into the sky of Thiruchendur. This gate is only used during festivals. The main entrance is the southern gate called Shanmukha Vilasa.
A Well maintained and manged Temple

Tiruchendur Temple is located in sea shore of Bay of Bengal. Place is so good . Temple is crowded all time and it's quite big.
There is long line for free dharshan it takes 30mins to 2 hour for a dharshan. And there is a special entry ticket for dharshan also available there. It takes 10mins. If you don't want to be in line, kindly take special entry ticket.it was nice experience in temple.

This temple is one of the "Arupadai veedu" temples. Fortunately, when we visited there was not much crowd and we had a peaceful and satisfying darshan. Avoid going on special days.
Like many other temples, this also has an ancient history and heritage. You need at least 2 hours to see it completely.
Archagas are very good on a normal day and explain your questions well.
Don't put any money in the hundi, as it goes to the government departments who need not spend the money for temple requirement. Instead, give it to the archagas who will provide you a good darshan with the explanation (follow this for all Hindu temples in south India)

Arulmigu Subramaniya Swamy Temple, Thiruchendur.

This Temple, an ancient Hindu temple, dedicated to Lord Murugan is situated in Tiruchendur, Tamil Nadu, India. Arulmigu Subramaniya Swamy Temple in Tiruchendur is known as the second Arubadai Veedu of Lord Murugan.

It is located in the district of Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, India. It is about 40 km from Tuticorin. Temple is open from 5 AM to 9 pm.

A very divine, quiet and pious place where you get lots positive energy. The architecture is so very wonderful and awe striking. The temple is also well maintained and clean. However, the temple administration must take notice of the way the commercialization of darshan procedure which is ruining the divinity of the place. Everywhere the “agents” try to fleece you with promises of a darshan from very near the deity. The temple administration must arrange for a proper crowd Management so that all devotees have quick and good darshan. Corruption/fraud is so brazenly open - the agents collect the admission fees and take the devotees for darshan without paying the full collected fees.

There are shops and eateries near the temple offering various religious and vegetarian food items.
