This ancient port town of Chola empire at once flashes across our minds the tragic tale of chaste Kannaki and her cleat lord Kovalan. And it is the seat of those historical characters who trailed a blaze across the pages of both history legends arid literary pieces. The immortal hero and heroine of Silappa-thikarain, the priceless gift of langovan took its birth and breath here, and they come to life as if by magic, if once its name is uttered although the old town was submerged in the sea. But tile government's sincere efforts to revive its past splendour has presented to the tourists and theists many monuments like Art Gallery, Pavai Manram, Elangi Manram and Nedungal Manram.

Along with them a beautiful little shrine dedicated to Kaliamnia is drawing theists in large numbers among whom the fishermen's community form majority. It is a modern shrine modest in size and adornments, but the faith it installed in the minds of locals, particularly fishermen is beyond the range of words. The Mother never lets down any of her genuine adorers.

Hence, the fishermen before launching their operations invariably pray soulfully to her for safe return. And their prayers are answered to their immense satisfaction. For scholars who are well versed in Tamil Classics, this place affords unforgettable experience and they feel like wandering amidst history and taking a stroll through time. It is a charming shore resort visited by unending streams of tourists and gay picnickers. For theists, this Kaliamman shrine nearby Siva temple are worth an indispensable visit.

It lies near Sirkali at a distance of 10 km,  accessible by bus.
