Bhagavathy Amman Temple, Kanyakumari

(260+ reviews on the web)
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.
  • Really amazing place. That ambience divinity in temple can only be experienced. Temple staffs aren't friendly.

  • Devi kanyakumari is worshiped here.Just near by India n ocean.nice Place.
  • This temple is also known as Kanyakumari temple. It is near and on the way to sunrise point. Sunrise point comes just after crossing this temple. There you need to keep your footwear outside the temple...No specific secured place to keep your sleeper. Here guys need to remove their shirt to visit the temple. Temple people not so friendly, but that's OK as we are going to worship only, we are not going to do chit-chat with them. Temple is old and not well maintained but main temple inside is good. They will give you diya to light. You can buy 1 diya in Rs5. Prasad you wanna buy or not...upto you. Overall review : I haven't felt so good after visiting there.
