Must see Temple. We went around 11am., little crowd, but not too much. Those Archagars explained the swamy’s background.

known more as the Suchindram Temple this is a must visit place. There is also a big Hanuman statue of 22 feet inside the temple complex which is made with one solid granite stone. There are 4 musical pillars which emit a different musical note if you tap it. The temple closed by 11 am in morning and ensure you get to see the abhishekham done before that

This is a very old temple which architecturally marvelous.This temple is dedicated to trimurthi(brahma,vishnu,eswara) and we can see the idol at the entrance of the temple but moolavirat is Lord shiva and there are small temples of various gods like Vinayaka,vishnu,Lord shanmukha and various Lingams of Lord Shiva.This temple is having long and spacious corridors and there is a big idol of Lord Hanuman at the other side of varandha.There is a big pond at one side of the temple.This temple can be reached by public transport from Nager Coil Vadacherry busstand which is at 7km.

We visited the Thanumalayan temple which is also popularly known as the Suchindram temple. The temple opens at 5pm but we arrived at 4. The friendly temple volunteer, aka a tour guide, approach us and started the tour. He walked us though approximately 30 shrines and pointed to the captivating architecture of the music pillars, and even brought to the secret corner where no visitor allowed to come. Priceles experience! (of course, we tipped him and gave a small donations at every shrine we stopped)
Highly recommend!

A friend reffered this place and glad we visited. Temple is different from what we usually see. I.e 1) Bhrahma,Vishnu and Shiva in same linga. 2) Navagrahas are carved on the roof 3) Anyaneya statue is of 18 feet with his tail is above his head. Temple is 1000+years old and has good vibe.

Only thing to Avoid is people trying to sell you stuff inside the temple ( Garlands and ghee).

Very big temple of God with separate sanctum sanctorum for Shiva, vishnu and Brahma. The temple is also famous for huge Anjaneya. The temple is very fast and very well maintained. Thoroughly enjoyable visit. We will get karuppatti nearby , which are very tasty.

This temple is located at a distance of about 7 - 8 KMS from Kanyakumari.

This temple is one among the rare temples where " Shiva , Vishnu And Brahma " are worshipped in a single temple premises..

The name of the place "Susindram" is because of the following explanation .

Suchi (in Sanskrit) - means Purify
Indram - the place where Indra (the head of all Devas) came to worship Lord Shiva and perform "Artha Jama Pooja" (at midnight) daily.

Sthanu (Shiva), Mal ( Vishnu) Ayan ( Brahma) is said to be in the same linga form in the main linga of this temple.

Hence the name "Sthanumalayan temple".

The place is full of architectural wonders and workmanship. Luckily we took a guide who could explain the details..the musical pillars, the yaali sculpture where you can insert a stick through it years and it will come through the other side..Vigneshwari idol which can only be seen in this temple alone ..Brahma, Siva and Vishnu as single murti..just spend more time when you hit there..
