And this temple is just an opportunity for those who can not visit all six of the "originals" touch "copies" and pay tribute to Murugan in its six main roles in one place.

  • Went for a marriage there, very big and spacious beach facing Temple capable to handling 5 to 6 marriages at the same time. Lord Murugan in his various avatars is present there. The temple is very neatly maintained and has very good ambience. Ample space for car parking. Early morning view of the Temple from the beach is awesome 🤘
  • What a lovely temple it is!!! So divinely... and peaceful place to meditate... very calm well maintained... so beautiful it is...
  • Nice place to visit... Specially in the evening... Coz beach breeze with spiritual feeling will make u feel better n memorable one...
  • One of the most beautiful temples in modern era, built on traditional fundamentals. Entirely built on granite, close to the beach. Calm, peaceful and breezy. On a non-festive day, you can hear own breath. Overflowing with divinity. Non-commercial temple which maintains high standards in cleanliness. Other metros can only dream about such a temple.
  • The temple located near the Beach. Openness and air circulations gives peace of mind. The sea air good for health.
