Aazhimala Temple and Beach

In connected with the marriage function after the pozhikkara visit, we visited Aazhimala Beach. (Also known as Azhimala). It is in the road of Poovar-Vizhinjam-Kovalam-Thiruvananthapuram. We started our journey through this way in the place of pulinkudi, there was an arch to direct us to Aazhimala, we turned our vehicles there.

The road reached in front of Aazhimala Siva Temple. While the maintenance was going on in the temple we couldn’t collect more information about the temple. So we moved to the beach. Beach lies in Arabian sea.

By seeing the nature of the place itself we can understand the meaning of Aazhimala (Aazhi -> sea + mala -> rock ). On our observation instead of sea shore, we could find the huge rocks.

Since the rocks were more up and downs, we felt very danger. Along with that the sun also irritating us more. But we thought of taking challenge to come around the place. In some places at groove of the rock, we saw the shells growing in that place.

Another amazing thing in Aazimala is, the waves are dashing on the rocks and spreading the water, really it is a wonderful scene. All our cameras clicked that. Since it was too hot, so we could n’t stay there. To get relief from the hot we went to a farm which was near by the rock, with full of trees. We took rest few minutes.

Since it was photography place. We took some beautiful snaps from there. Still we wish to visit the place again.

According to our view, if anybody wish to visit the place, go with group and take enough care also.
