  • Located near beach and good time to spend time in spiritual manner along with family and friends. Kids like this beach very much as it’s shallow and no high risks are there.
  • One of the historical place in South India where we worship Lord Subramanian..Gents are only allowed with bare body only.You have to remove your top wear when entering inside. It is a very quiet place and you get positive energy here. It is very close to the beach which is clean and well maintained.. It is place where powerful energy vibrates the wave from the sea make you feel clam...time will pass away like a flash.. if you have money you could explore inside the temple with you give it to a temple guide.. Only problem with this temple is that aiyars here treat it like business...
  • Great Temple for lord Murugan. I love to watch the sea all the time. people Crowd is always there on functional days. so we need a lot of improvements hygienic methods.
  • Nice temple and the view is very good. You can enjoy the water but try not going in the summer because it gets too hot. If you pay more you can skip the line. Food is easily available here. Temple is very big so you can rest after your darshan
  • going there from my childhood, excellent temple maintenance and will get good devotional feelings once visit there. For past 5 generations this temple is like our family god(visiting frequently). Our all generation peoples first hair balding will be in here only... Arogara.....
