Bhagavathy Amman Temple, Kanyakumari

4.3
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Kanyakumari
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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. Using our international travel planner, Kanyakumari attractions like Bhagavathy Amman Temple can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Not a big temple. But the goddess is very famous with travelers. The entry point to this temple is narrow with both sides covered with shops. Hence, taking car inside is not advisable. Male devotees need to take their shirt off to visit the goddess. Comparatively small temple, there is an inside entry to beach from where you can enjoy the scenic view of Thiruvalluvar Statue & Vivekananda Rock.

Where to stay in Kanyakumari

The end of the line, Kanyakumari has a number of accommodations to host those adventurous enough to come here. Located close to the train station, along the handily named Main Road, you'll find some popular budget options, including family-run guesthouses and simple hotels. Further to the south along the thoroughfare, things get a little more upmarket. Take a look at the beachside hotels, offering rooms from which you can watch the sunrise without getting out of bed.
