Must visit place in nagercoil or Kanyakumari. Entry fee for car is Rs. 30/-. I visited in evening. Poojari's will try to attract you to purchase pooja accessories. I purchased for anjaneya, but the way pooja was done, I totally didnot like it.

Thanumalayan Temple in Suchindrum can be reached from Kanyakumari by taking a bus from Kanyakumari Main Bus stop, which is located near the Government Hospital. It's about 11 Km away and hardly takes 40 minutes to reach. Thanumalayan Temple is a very beautiful temple. You get to see great sculpture, art and architecture work in the temple building.

Very near to Kanyakumari. Usually I visited Kanyakumari multiple times but never heard of this temple. We had a friend in Nagercoil who knew about this temple. So we had been here in a rented car. Three GODS in a single Idol - Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara. So crowded when we went there. And shirts to be removed by Men.... More

This was the most peaceful and interesting temples I've been to in India. It might have been because we were the only tourists, or because the art and architecture was so amazing, I'm not sure. We got there and my male friend was instructed to take off his shirt as we gave our cameras to the man at the front... More

Close to KK. Just 11 KMs. If you want to visit just one temple and something closer to KK, this is the one. Ancient 3500 years old temple with absolute architecture and all Indian Gods.
