Bhagavathy Amman Temple, Kanyakumari

4.2
#2 of 17 in Historic Sites in Kanyakumari
You can’t take any photographs at Bhagavathy Amman Temple, but you will surely remember everything you see. Built right at the edge of the water, where the three seas--the Indian Ocean, the Bay of Bengal, and the Arabian Sea--meet, the temple and the area are considered sacred. Marvel at a natural phenomenon; at the point where the bodies of water meet, you can distinguish between three colors of water, none of which mix with each other. See the statue of the Goddess Bhagavathy Amman, whose nose rings reflect the light of the surrounding oil lamps and used to act as a makeshift lighthouse for sailors. Pay attention to the temple's modest dress code.

  • Very old temple, dark inside, you'll feel as if you've entered a cave. But once you see the goddess you'll forget everything. Main attraction here is the nose stud of the goddess which is so shiny and bright. Legend says it use to be light house for sailors, but the brightness of the stud blinded them. So even today the front door of the temple facing sea is always closed and you've to enter the temple through East door.
  • Very old closed dark temple. Speed Darshan is 20 rupees per person. Lotuses 10 rupees each. They do not seem to put the lotuses at the deity’s feet. Shirts to be removed by men. Temple open times on the picture
  • Kanya kumari temple of mata kanyakumari TN near vivekanand rock memorial kanyakumari TN and gandhi mandapam. You should must visit this holy temple
