KANYAKUMARI

Banasura is believed to have been killed near about Pothia Malai, north of Kanyakumari. From this mountain two rivers flow-one called the Tamravarni on the northern side, created by Sage Agasthya, and the other, the Kulithurai River, in the south. It was stated earlier that Parashurama established a Vinayaka at Kanyakumari just before establishing the Kanyakumari Amman. It was done with the idea that Vinayaka would help retaining the Amman there with all Her glory and get Her fulfil his purpose. Indra established another Vinayaka when he arrived there, called Indrakantha Vinayaka.

The processional deity in the Kanyakumari temple is called Thyagasundari. The Holy Mother, who appears in the state of being ready for marriage,is called Syamasundari. Cape comorin can be easily reached from Tirunelveli and Trivandrum, which are both Stations on the Southern-Railway.Buses ply to the Cape from these places. A Government Travellers Bungalow, Devasthanam choultries and Government and private hotels provide accommodation to visitors.
