One of the Sakti Peeth, this is an old temple situated near the beach and very close to most of the attractions in Kanyakumari. There is a dress code there and males have to be topless to visit the temple. There is a legend with the famous nose ring associated with the Devi.

This temple is located near beach and is very scenic. Deity goddess looks so beautiful and famous nose ring was earlier used to help boats in the sea . Light reflecting power of that diamond ring was so high.

In many of the temples in TamilNadu, priests themselves ask for kanike whether the devotees are interested or not which is not really a good thing :( but the temple is pretty decent compared to other temples a little well maintained but very crowded as usual.

Had time to visit this temple before the sunset view and after coming from Vivekananda rock. Temple is 100 meters from all the major site seeing places in kanyakumari, while you walk along the road to this temple , you have awesome shops for shopping , women and kids go crazy with this, famous things are variety of kitchen items...

Such a beautiful temple at land end. Goddess looks so beautiful as if someone is sitting infront of us. But due to tourism reason most of the temple is not allowed for people. It will be great if v can access all parts of the temple. Beautiful place .

It's old and ancient temple of Parvathi Amma but under control of infamous pandas. But Darshan is good and male has to go after removing shirt and undershirt. No need to take ticket but pandas try to misguide and fleece.

10 minutes walk to the temple. Both side of the road are stalls selling a variety of tourist things. The temple has its own history whereby the Goddess diamond nostrils bright rays saved a ship from disaster. Had a wonderful darshsn of Goddess Bagawathy Amman. No words to express my happiness. It was indeed a pleasant day.
