  • It is so magical to go here if you are in to architecture and temples. So serene, you feel as though you are in a real temple. When I had been there there was not much crowd, we walked around the temple which had great architecture,calm and not commercialised not too cluttered. Great place to visit if you are interested in old temples .
  • One of the most beautiful architectures, but the goons inside the temple posted by govt tenders are unnecessary trouble. They try to loot u to the extent possible in name of God. Try to avoid these goons. God doesn't need ur money or garlands forced by the goons.
  • Speciality of this temple is all the Navagraha (9 planets) of this Temple is located top
  • An old temple, looking small in size from outside but has a vast area inside. Contains a large pool outside of the temple. A good place to visit if u ride from Trivandrum to Kanyakumari.
  • Must visit temple. Awesome one.. Margazhi thiruvizha is special here. Gents Should remove their shirts .
