Again this one is maintained by the Tranvancore royalty, the temple is not well maintained at all. Too many touts who scare you with false propaganda about the rituals there. Otherwise the temple is excellent and dieties are so beautiful and when adorned with all the revelry and jewelry they look awesome.

We travelled to this temple by bus from Kanyakumari. Its about an hours journey via Nagercoil. Temple is very huge and must see items are the statue of Marthanda varma and his consort for its detailing, Hanuman Temple and Musical Pillars. Better to visit the Temple before 10 AM as the door gets closed by 11;30 in the morning. Abhishekams... More

It is said this is the only temple in India where Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar are worshiped together. An old place with all the charms of a south Indian temple

Visiting the temple was an excellent experience. Quite close to Kanyakumari, and also to Trivandrum. The temple has a huge idol of Lord Hanuman, along with the "trimurtis" Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara on a single linga. It is a must visit if you are around this part of the country.

A beautiful structure in pure white is what best describes this temple. The intricate sculpture work, the detailed artistic carvings are all splendid. The presiding deity of this temple is an aggregated form of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva in one idol/body. Devotees worship all the three Lords in one form here. Temple is well maintained and it took us half... More
