  • A visit to this temple I always remember. One of the most holy temples for Hindus. It is an architectural marvel as well. It's corridor is so long that I felt tired walking. The devotion of worshippers here is amazing. It is situated on a sandy island. How come they transported such an amount granite stone to build such a gigantic temple ! They also have a sweet water well on the sandy sea bed.
