A place evokes nostalgia

We were in Karakul for religious purpose. To visit famous Aayiram Kaliamman Koil situated 6 kms away in a place called TR Pattinam. The deity Aayiram Kaliamman can be seen by general public / devotees only for 2 days once in every 5 years. We were blessed to see Devi on 07 June 2017. The next opportunity available will be in year 2022 only. We would like to appreciate gesture of local people who have helped for placing our offerings to Devi which weighed around 50 Kgs. Even though there was huge rush - devotees waited for more than 6 hours - every one including local public and police officials helped us to take our offerings without making us wait in queue. Thank you Karaikkalites !!!

A nice trip

I had been to Karaikal by train in April 2016. Karaikal is a must-visit in the tourism circuit of Modern Pondicherry. The must-visit attractions around Karaikal include the Sanishwaran Temple and the Karaikal Sandy Beach. The Shanishwaran temple is located around 5 kilometers from Karaikal and the presiding deity here is Shani.

This temple is located in a village called Thirunallar. The Karaikal Sandy beach is located on the banks of the Arasalar river and this location is very famous for both sunrise and sunset views. This location is also famous for water sports, children's park, tennis court and a beach restaurant. An added attraction to the visitors of this famous beach is a boat jetty where visitors can avail of pedal, rowing and motor boats.
