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.

The practice in the temple followed in the basis of Kerala style temples. As it was closing time and very less crowd, we had good dharshan. There is a tall statue of Lord Hanuman... More

You would need a priest who can show you these places (and you dont have to find them they themselves will accompany you... More

We visited Sri Thanumalayan Swamy Temple, Suchindrum at evening from Kanyakumari by driving 15 kilometres. The main deity of the temple is Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma and it is one of the few temples in the country where the Trinity, Brahma, Vishnu and Ishvara, are worshipped. The current temple is 400 years old. We were surprised to... More

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. This temple... More

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
