#1 of 6 in Things to do in Thoothukudi District
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.
