  • This reminds us one of those western cowboy movies,and dilapidated church,water tank,railway track. Sad this town was destroyed in a cyclone in 1964 and these are monuments of proof. 
  • The ruins and the remains of the church is not much attractive. There is one old man sitting near to this church who had atleast some courtesy to explain the tourists. 
  • Not of much significance. Destroyed by the cyclone in 1964 and not rebuilt. It is at old Dhanush Kodi
