And 55 km off Tirunelveli, one of the famous Dt.Hd.Qrs. town in the South.
The temple complex has three main shrines-one for Sankaranarayana--two gods in one
from, exemplifying the truth-Siva and Vishi,u are one another for Gomati Amman, the local name for
Mother Parvathi and the last one for Maheswar in his usual LINGAKARA. An annual festival

Crowds overflow the little town and they participate in the ritualistic worship with great
ardor. It is believed that many chronic diseases take to flight, if one prays and fasts at the holy feet
of Mother Gomati Amman.
