My Self visited today dated 24-09-2019 to Tiruchendur it's one of the best and very big Murugan / Subramanya temple, it is very close to sea/beach we can enjoy in beach also, beware of temple poojaris almost all poojaris are corrupted and they ask bribe directly, if we refuse means they will become angry, for an entry we have to take ticket, near to the ticket counter they stand and approach us not to take ticket and they want money for their pocket, be careful about poojaris apart from that every thing is excellent temple is very big we enjoyed a lot

- The place is very famous for its desserts. So you may want to ditch your diet for those few days.
