This is a beautiful temple well worth a look thru. Huge halls, ,musical stone pillars, lovely architecture. Downside is you are constantly asked to pay for something - entry , flower offering and if a priest wants to give you a guided tour be prepared to be asked for a donation. I actually found the guided tour insightful.

Normally one doesn't get to see the Trinity in one idol and it would be worth visiting just for this alone. We were there when the temple opened at 4.30 PM and there was no mad rush.

The temple was a very beautiful structure in pure white. All the three main gods of Hindu cult - Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma, were worshiped in a Single form in this temple. The Hanuman statue in the temple is very tall and magnificent. Only downside is the priests trying to extract money by bothering you... They tend to become kind... More

This is a very beautiful temple dedicated to Tridev. Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva are represented as a single diety and worshipped here. The temple is very well maintained and located amidst beautiful surroundings. There is a big pool of clear water near the temple. The architecture of the temple is very impressive.

The temple gopuram at the entrance is really huge. One of a kind temple with a very tall statue of Lord hanuman along with the main deity the. Brahma Vishnu and maheshwara. Do visit this temple. It is very close to kanyakumari.

I was on my way back to thiruvananthapuram from Kanyakumari and saw the sign board in the road 'temple' and decided to take a visit. The temple is quiet big with lots of idols to workshop. There are entry fees for vehicle except two wheelers into the premise.
