Kanyakumari Bhagavathy Amman Temple

Published Date: 03-May-2024

This 3000-year-old shrine, also known as Devi Kanyakumari Temple, is one of the most religious and historically significant places to visit in Kanyakumari. The temple is one of 51 Shakti Peethas dedicated to Devi Kanyakumari Amman. This is thought to be one of the locations where some of Goddess Sati’s lifeless body fell when Lord Shiva carried her on his shoulders and performed the dance of destruction. A beautiful idol of Devi Kanyakumari Amman with a rosary in her hand and sparkling gold jewellery in her nostrils can be found in the temple. Apart from the spiritual aura, the temple is also known for its impressive ancient architecture and enthralling scenic beauty.
