Religious city-Tuticorin

We reached Tuticorin early in the morning and checked in the hotel. After breakfast we hired a cab to Rameshwaram and after visiting Rameshwaram city reached back by about 9:30 PM. Tuticorin city as such does not have picnic spots. City has a good market plus big fish auction joint. There is one very old famous Murugen Temple and is considered one of the sacred temples in India. In south people wish to visit the temple in their lifetime. Temple is about 40 Kms from Tuticorin and one can plan to visit early morning.

We have main entrance to temple from there one has to walk 2-3 Kms. Instead we enter from the rear entrance and car can be taken upto that point. Enough parking place is available. This temple is just at the Sea Shore. There is paid entry as well as free darshan. If you reach early, free darshan is comfortable. There are two concentric paths around the sanctrum and we are supposed to take round along those paths. After Darshan, one can purchase prasadam inside the temple area. Malee are required to enter without shirt and without under-shirt. It is believed that after temple visit one must take a dip in adjoining Sea. Must visit if visiting Tuticorin.

Nice place to visit

I had been to Tuticorin in the month of November 2015. Tuticorin is a must stop-over in the tourist circuit of Tamil Nadu. Tuticorin is easily accessible by all the three modes of transport ie road, rail and air. The nearest airport to Tuticorin is located at a distance of 10 kilometres from the centre of the city. The must-visit attractions around Tuticorin include Sri Vaikuntam Temple, Kalakudi Wildlife sanctuary and Kalugumalai. The Vaikuntam temple was built by the Pandyan King Shankara Pandyan. Kalugumalai dates back to the 18th century containing a Jain cave temple and Jain architecture.
