( Excursion )
Town buses ply between the temple and the bus stand from early
morning untill late at night. Cycling is a good way of getting around
town and out to Dhanushkodi. You may rent a bike.
On the coast south of Tuticorin, this impressive shore temple
is one of the six abodes of Lord Murugan and is very popular with
pilgrims. You may be able to enter the inner sanctrums here and
watch the enthusiastic proceedings. Be careful if they offer you
a gulp of the holy water- pouring it over your hands and rubbing
them together joyously is an acceptable substitute for drinking
This ancient temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. 55 km away
from the city and is commonly visited by Vaishnavites.
