Good prilgrimage

The worship of Lord murugan was special in this pilgrim. The temple was residing very close to the beach. And the azhi kinaru(well) theertham was so special and divine here. Valli kugai was also one of the place to visit here. Overall a wonderful pilgrimage place. Must visit once in life.

Temple has a scenic beauty

Tiruchendur is one of the major worship places of lord Muruga. The beauty of the temple is that it lies at the sea shore providing the devotee scenic beauty. In order to get a glimpse of the lord the male devotees aren't allowed to wear shirt or t-shirt.
