Kalikesam - 1

Name: Kalikesam (Keeriparai Forest Range in Kanyakumari District)

Location: 15 km north of Nagercoil and 35 km north of Kanyakumari.

Route: Nagercoil -----> Puthery -----> Thittuvilai ----->

Alagiyapandiapuram -----> Thadikarankonam ----->

Keeriparai ------> Kalikesam


After crossing a bridge in keeriparai, we will find ourselves at the 'V' junction of two roads

While the left leads to Kalikesam , the right leads to Vattaparai and
Balamore Estate.
Take the left one and travel (about 2 Km) till the end of the road.

Kalikesam Welcomes us.


A Kali temple situated by the side of the stream attracts devotees
on Tuesdays and Fridays. During the Tamil month of Adi women come
to the temple on Tuesdays and Fridays and prepare Kozhukkattai
(a round shaped cake of rice flour) as an offering to the Kali.




A few yards against the downstream will lead us to an ideal place for bathing.

Nice description. But the pictures fail to convey the scenic beauty. The river reminds us of the Kallar River (Nedumangadu) in years back.
