TRIP OVERVIEW

It is believed that Lord Brahma ordered the Pandyan king to build a temple in this very place to redeem him from his sins. Many other theories about the birth of Varkala abound. Another legend states that Narada threw his valkalam (a loin cloth made from the bark of a tree) when a group of pilgrims approached Sage Narada and told him that they had sinned, and it landed in this scenic village and thus the place came to be known as Varkala.At Papanasam, which literally means salvation from sins, Narada told the pilgrims to pray for their salvation.

Varkala is also known for the Janardana Swami Temple, 2,018 years old, which is an important Vaishnavaite shrine in India and is also referred to as Dakshin Kashi (Southern Benares). The temple is located near Papanasam beach, an Ayurveda treatment centre. The temple has an ancient bell removed from a shipwreck, donated without causing any casualties by the captain of the Dutch vessel which sank near Varkala.

Varkala Beach is a haven for sunbathing and swimming, or Papanasam Beach. Resorts, restaurants, and other stores include the cliff and the ocean. On Varkala Beach, the black portion of the sand includes thorium-oxide, which is a radioactive material. All over Kerala, thorium and thorium-oxide and its isotopes are found and can be marked by their black colour. From Dindigul to Varkala to visit so many sightseeing places.

Around 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) north of Varkala Town is Kappil Lake. Until merging into the Arabian Sea, this serene estuary meanders through thick coconut groves. A viewing point to view the backwater stretching white and grey to the distant blue horizon is the bridge across the bay. Another way to discover this waterway is by boating.

The 151-year-old Varkala Tunnel is a tourist highlight. It was a 924 ft long tunnel designed by Sir T. Madhava Rao, the Travancore Dewan, in 1867, and it took 14 years to complete. Another tourist highlight in the vicinity is Varkala Lighthouse.

Janardana Swami Temple, which attracts thousands of pilgrims, is a very popular Vaishnavite shrine. The temple is nearly 2,000 years old. Papasnanam Beach, facing the temple, is where devotees take a bath in the hope that their sins will be washed away by the holy waters. A large bell washed up at the temple from the wreck of a Dutch merchant ship is held on display.For more details about Dindigul to Varkala tour package please contact 9443204141,9578784466.
