  • One of the top rated Murugan temple, only one on a sea shore in a sprawling complex. Visited the magnificent and majestic temple of Lord Murugan last week and to be honest, very much disappointed...

  • Everything is well here ,Tamil God Murugaaa 🤟, Thank you for your blessings Murugaaaa
  • Beautiful and peaceful place to visit. Beach were neat. Lots of restaurants and lodges are available near the temple. More crowd on Thursday. Autos were available from the bus stand to the temple. Bargain the price. Make sure in booking your stay before you visit during festive days.
