Also known as the Kumari Amman Temple, the Kanyakumari Temple is dedicated to the goddess Devi Kumari Amman. The temple is of great religious importance and thousands throng the temple complex to pay their respects and seek the blessings of the goddess.

The significance of this temple lies in the fact that it is a Shakti Peetha and legend has it that pieces of Goddess Durga’s body fell here during the great Shiva Tandav dance. The temple houses an opulent black statue of the deity.
