Bhagavathy Amman Temple, Kanyakumari

4.3
#2 of 10 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.

  • 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.
