Head to Thiruchendur Murugan Temple and see one of India's largest and most visited temples. Dedicated to Lord Murugan, the 40 m (133 ft) sandstone tower represents one of six sacred temple complexes of the Kaumaram region, and the only one located by the sea. Pilgrims from around the world visit the holy place every year. You can see the tall, thin, pyramid-shaped Dravidian design from all around the city; up close you can marvel at the seemingly countless intricate figures making up the facade.

  • 2nd of the 6 padaiveedu. Morning Udhaya Marthanda darisanam very famous. Can worship panchalingam before 7 am.
  • Hi Devotees, I have great faith in Lord Murugan. I need some information. I have to do a "Valai Maram" pooja/marriage. i.e, my son has to be married to a banana tree at Tiruchendur Temple, due to some dosam in his horoscope. Is anyone aware if this is done in Tiruchendur Temple? Or are you aware if anyone has done it? Any information is welcome. Regards.....
  • Beautiful temple dedicated to Lord Muruga. Temple is quite big with lot of portraits with stories. Good place to take kids and tell them stories with pictures. The nearby sea is quite peaceful too.
  • I love the god of murugan. And specially trichendur
  • 1. The road from Thootukudi to the temple is only suitable for suv's. 2. No proper parking facility for car/other vehicles, all goes in one place. Your car is under the grace of sun, so it will be cooked nicely. 3. Be careful with the beach, as cleanliness could not be maintained with such crowd. 4. Three types of Dharshan available, free Dharshan, 100rs and 300rs of which none will allow you to see the Lord if you are struck with the crowd. One trick which will help is, stick to the walls. Note: In this temple men are not allowed to wear shirts, so you can show-off. 5. There is a cave inside the temple where you can see godess valli. 6. Around Thiruchendur you can buy Jaggery that contains ginger and some other herbs. 7. Macroon is another sweet which you can buy in Thoothukudi. 8. There's no private toilets but the management maintained ones. 9. Separate dress changing rooms for women. 10. Always carry drinking water as the shops are selling some local made purified bottle's.
