A Must visit place , havent seen a deity idol like that.

You can first visit Padmanabha swamy temple, it takes about twenty minutes by car from airport, Darshana closes by 12 and it’s hence preferred to visit the temple first and from there Kovalam beach is around 45 minutes by car though it’s just 15–17 kms . You can visit lighthouse and Kovalam beach and by six start towards Kanyakumari. It’s a long drive though distance is around 80 kms, keep a cool two and half hours at least for this drive
