Kumarakom - Varkala / Papanasham Beach

Varkala Beach is one of a kind beaches where cliffs are seen adjacent to the Arabian Sea. And this feature makes this beach stand out from other beaches in southern Kerala. This pristine beach is also known as Papanasham Beach as it is believed that a dip in the holy waters of this beach washes away all the sins in one's life. This beach is also known for its relaxing setting which makes it a perfect destination for a weekend getaway. The two-thousand-year-old Janardhanaswamy Temple situated near the Papanasham Beach is a spiritual hub and an architectural splendour as well. The Sivagiri Mutt, established by the great religious philosopher and reformer, Sree Narayana Guru is another place of attraction near the Papanasham Beach.
