The history of Lord Muruga and disciples draws you over and over to this temple. The location is seaside. They have seasons as devotees throng the temple in green. Plenty of facilities. Needs more swatch bharat efforts.

Do visit early in the morning. Keep yourself away from the brokers roaming around in the entrance. Amazing deity. Do visit the panchalinga inside the cave beside muruga temple sanctum
