Another epic is Lord Rama installed the nine stones Navagrahas – 9 planets in the seashore and worshipped before going to the war with demon Ravana who kidnapped Sita – Rama’s wife.
Pilgrims believed that if they take a bath in this sea and worship the nine stones with nine rounds so, all our problems related to our karma and dhoshams related to your astrology chart will be remedied. The right time to visit this place is morning between 05:30 am to 08:30am because the stones are located inside the sea about 100m from the seashore. In this particular time the sea level and tides are very low so that you can easily walk into the sea with the help of a small bridge from the seashore to view the stones in the depth of 2 – 4 feet from the sea level and worship the navagrahas – nine stones. After 12pm the water level rises and the nine stones get submerged under the water. This temple is under taken by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments. Facilities for the pilgrims and tourist are not up to the mark so mostly recommended this place as enroute visit only or day excursion.
