Near the papanasam beach, there is a temple of Lord Janardhana Swami. The temple hosts ancient architecture. It is a small temple, but has a lot of popularity in the region.

Temple was pretty ordinary but had a fantastic tree that was over 2000 years old. Very impressive. And quite spiritual. Even the children were in awe of it. You have to pay to leave your shoe as and again to visit the temple. Not expensive

Really enjoyed wandering around this old Hindu temple - they are areas where tourists are not allowed but would recommend a visit - the tree with the dolls is a bit bizarre!
