KANYAKUMARI

This sublime archamurthi was installed by Sage Parasuram, th  sixth incarnation of Mahavishnu. Unwillingly leaving her presence due to pressure by the archakas, the devotees step into the adjacent chamber to worship Indra Vinayaka. Tyaga Sundari is another adoration worthy statue that draws the attention of the bhaktas.  

There are some more worshipful deities at the eastern prakaram of the temple near the wall.  The sculptural wealth of the temple, or its huge halls is comparatively modest.  So, the sight-seers direct their steps out side to saunter along the sea- shore, treasuring up several eye-catching sights, like Light House, Palatial Buildings, Rest houses, Adi Sankara shrine etc. and finally sit atop the rocks till the siren heralds the sunset to enjoy the glamorized spectacles of the setting sun in myraid colours.
