  • Nagaraja temple is situated in the heart of Nagercoil town. The name of the town Nagercoil originated from this temple. The people surrounding this temple visit this temple at least once in a week and beloved to be having great powers of the God. I am a regular to this temple from my young age. Whenever i visit my home town now i never miss to go to this temple. It is having a temple tank and the scene is excellent.

  • It is believed , ones this place was paddy field and people were harvesting. One fine day while everyone were cutting the paddy (I.e. they use to hold a bunch of paddy n cut it off the stem with sharp knifes) a 5 headed cobra's head got cut by a virgin girl who was cutting the paddy crops. So the people thought it's a sacred place and started worshiping there.

  • A place of unbroken worship for over 1,500 years. Maintained well and serves the community to this day. Possibly a former Jain temple evidenced by the two statues of tirthankaras (perhaps there were 24 in the original complex we don't know). A small temple complex but a must-see for visitors in and around kanyakumari.
