Varkala India is particularly well known for the holy Janardana-Swami Temple, built in the 13th century by the the God Vishnu, and is today one of the most popular pilgrimage destinations for Hindus. The 2000 year old sanctuary was built on cliff edges and looks over the Varkala India beach. Not far from here is the temple of Sivagiri Mutt, which is visited by many followers on Hindu pilgrimage days.
Varkala India is one of the most well-known cure spots in the country, and has several mineral sources. Often called “Papanasam Beach”, bathing in the holy water here is supposed to free the soul of sins and cleanse the body. The traditional healing art of Ayurveda is also intensively practiced in many Ayurveda centres here.

Whilst it is hit with heavy rain during the monsoon season, between June to October, in the rest of the months it is generally dy and warm. The year round constant temperatures and the high humidity makes the skin especially open for oil and herbal treatments.
