SUCHINDRAM

UNIQUENESS

Suchindram means 'the purifier of Indra', but it connotes a place imbued with the divine power of converting papa into punya, sin in to merit , base into pure, depraved into divine being in common parlance, it signifies now a small town with a big temple situated on the bank of Palayar in the Kanyakumari Dt. of Tamilnadu, but once an integral part of the princely state of Travancore Cochin. 

It has a splendid past and carved out for itself an enviable niche in the temple history of India, due to its association and habitation by many divine celebreties like Brahma, Vishnu, Maheswar, Indra and spiritual personages like Atri, Goutama along with their illustrious life partners.  Its legendary name was Jnanaranyam, reputed for its hermitages reverberating with Vedagosha.
