  TIRUCHENDUR - VALLI TEMPLE

This unique feature enkindles curiosity, and as they walk along circumambulating, they come across the Vinayakar shrine on the way and visit Valli cave lying to the north of the temple. It is an impressive small shrine dedicated to Valli and Dattatreya. In the rear, there is yet another smaller one carved out of stand stone. One has to bend his head, while entering due to narrow entrance and it is unfinished too. The image Valli placed in the niche is quite pleasing and commands veneration. Emerging, they reach the eastern side washed by the roaring waves. Sooner than seeing. they hurry down to the shore for sea bath; an indispensable ritual for the theists for bliss, and a jolly pastime for the tourists. Sri Valli mandapam lies to the west of the Dakshinamurthi shrine. It is here in this spacious mandapam, the annual Tirukalyanam of Valli is celebrated on Panguni Uthiram. Nithyanaimithika puja is offered with great fervor. Among the important festivals, Brahmotsavam ranks first and mention-worthy and it lasts for 12 days. Next comes Vasanthotsavam. Kanda Shasti and Tirukalyanam Devotees in thousands come and offer prayers to Lord Shamuga and Goddess Valli with great devotion.

It lies on the sea shore of Tiruchendur town, accessible by walk a four wheelers from bus stand.
