yes. correct. re-verfied it. It was mistake from my side. even Udayagirikkotta is under ASI and maitained well. (never visited it).

Others such as Padmanabahpuram fort (visited), colachel war memorial(visited), ernaniel palace etc (not visited , but seen photos in which palace is damaged very well) are not at all maintained.

Pudukkada ammaveedu, is also under ASI .. but not maintaied.. tourists are not allowed inside, seen from outside.

I'll update photos of these as and when I visit these again.

Nagercoil - kalikesam route

Visited Kalikesam, Thiruvithamcode, Colachel yesterday... i'll post the photos.. starting with Amazingly breathtaking Nagercoil - Kalikesam route.. This route is along the south end of Western Ghats.. the beautiful rice fields along the mountains add to the charm..

Beauty starts within 2 km leaving Nagercoil Town.

The "broken roads" identity of Kanyakumari district roads is fast changing.. all the newly laid/re-tarred roads are laid with very good quality.

Nagercoil - Thadikkarankonam route.









Amazing turn

More between Nagercoil - Thadikkarankonam

Again, notice the clouds

driving is pleasure along this route



Thadikkarankonam Junction. You have to take Right turn from here to go to Kalikesam. going straight will lead you to Kulasekharam, Kerala border, towards Nedumangad. (This is Aralvaimozhi - Nedumangad road)



I Will post the Thadikkarankonam - Kalikesam route photos later..

Thanks rsubbu. I'll try taking those photos during my next trips in the district.

Deviation from Thadikkarankonam, I think the roads beyond this checkpost are owned by Forest Department.

Thadikkarankonam - Kalikesam road pics. Amidst thick greenery..




Tamil Nadu is one of the state with Bus connectivity to every nook and corner of state, especially kanyakumari one of Three fully Nationalized district in TN (Chennai and Nilgiris being the others).. A TNSTC bus cited amidst thick forest.



road renovation going on in the forest road.

One of the oldest existing church structure in the world

In 1st century (52 AD) St. Thomas who was apostle of Jesus, beleived to be visited india and established ezhrapallikal (seven and half churches). All the seven churches are presently in Kerala, and the half church is in Kanyakumari district.

The structure is similiar to Kerala temples.

This is one of the must visit place in Kanyakumari district, especially for Christians.

This church proves that civilization existed in Kanyakumari district, as early as AD 52. Most of the St. Thomas christians of this region migrated to Central Travancore region over a period of time. This church is under Central Travancore (Kottayam) based Malankara Syrian Orthodox church.

for more details about this church visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thiruvithamcode_Arappally






Thiruvithamcode Town, 2 km from Thuckalay, on the way to West Neyyoor and Monday Market
