It is the shore temple dedicated to the virgin goddess Devi Kanniyakumari (Parvati), who stands guard over the country. The legend of this temple is as romantic as the place itself. The temple is built at the spot where the goddess is believed to have done penance and waited for her consort Lord Shiva to come and claim her hand in marriage. Another legend says that the goddess single handedly conquered demons and secured freedom for the world. In May/June there is a car festival where an idol of the deity is taken in procession and in September/October the Navratri (9-nights) Festival celebrates Devi's victory over the demons.
