Great Temple. Thanumalayan Swami means three in one God. There is a seperate statue for Anchaneyar (Hanuman) also. The festival is very great.

A single place to find the three gods of Hinduism in a single statute is this one. Amazing architecture, There is one statute where in you can actually insert a stick into one ear and take it out the other ear.
