TIRUCHENDUR

‘The Tiruchendur temple is the celebrated seashore temple of Lord Subrahmanya. It is situated in the Tiruchendur taluk of the
TiruneIveli District. The distance from Madras is about 443 miles. The temple is on the shore of the Gulf of Mannar. The surging cool tides of the sea wash the foot of the temple. There is no other ’shrine in Madras State, with such a beautiful natural setting. The Gulf of Mannar is shallow and is safe for sea bath.

Before entering the temple pilgrims either wash their feet or take a bath in the sea. The bathing that contains nine Teerthams according to the Sthalapuranam. A bath in any of these Teerthams is believed to confermiraculous benefits on a devotee. It is said that once, when Brahma lost one of his five heads, due to the anger of Siva, he came to this Teertha, took a holy dip in it and had his head restored. Similarly one Angasundari, a Pandyan princess born with the face of a horse, was blessed with a beautiful face after a bath at Vathararamba Teertham.
