Varkala



Varkala
, a small seaside town in Kerala, has been a Hindu pilgrimage site since the 12th Century. To this day, the eight-hundred year old Janardhanaswamy Temple remains a popular pilgrimage spot. Varkala is also blessed with an un-spoilt, golden beach, lapped by the waters of the Indian Ocean.

Temperature : Summer Max: 35 deg cel; Winter Min: 15 deg cel Rainfall : 310 cm Main Occupation : Trading, Fishing
 


Varkala is a small, peaceful resort just 51km from Trivandrum international airport and 176km from Cochin international airport. It is thick with coconut trees that house many kinds of wildlife, bird life and butterflies. Varkala’s main beach, Papanasam is long and golden with a stunning backdrop of red literate cliffs from which healing mineral water springs forth.

To the north and south Varkala boasts endless stretches of fantastic beach undiscovered by the average tourist.

These beaches are the home of Varkala’s fishing communities who are a pleasure to watch as they haul in their nets that hold varying catches every morning.

Varkala’s Temple Junction is the home of an ancient Janardhanaswamy Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu that  was largely rebuilt in the 13th century. The minor shrines found around the temple date from much earlier.

In February/March every year the temple becomes a site of pilgrimage for thousands of devotees. Next to the temple are the ghats where the local people come to wash their clothes and themselves.
