Suchindram - Sri Mahavishnu Temple

This temple has carved out for itself an enviable niche in the temple history of Bharat and figures as the only one of its kind for enshrining the Trimurtis in one Mahalinga called Dharmasamvardhini. In addition, it is well-known for Suchindram Pratyayam that tolls death knell to the imposters, frauds and their brood of infinite variety. In the sanctum sanctorum, the Moolavar locally popular as Sthanamalaya Perumal greets the devotees in the linga form and lifts them to their souls satisfaction due to combining in himself Brahma and Vishnu. Next to this lies another equally holy shrine called Thakkedam dedicated to Sri Mahavishnu. The statue is 7 feet in height and covered with dazzling silver Kavacham. His consorts Sridevi and Bhudevi are placed in front. The decoration of this Perumal is exceedingly grand and the garlands and jewels over the Kavacham transports the viewers to Vaikuntam at first sight itself. The entire sight recalls to the memory the Balaji vigraha of Tirupathi. Behind this shrine are installed Amarabhujanga perumal and Suchindra perumal in separate niches. Indeed there are as many as thirty minishrines inside the prakara, and it takes hours to visit them all for worshipping. It becomes quite a rewarding experience to see the paintings on the inner walls of the gopuram. Many episodes that occurred in this place are painted with minute details, and as such they recreate the glory of this divya kshetra.

It lies about 10 km of Kanyakumari, the Land's end, accessible by train and bus.
