Normally, the Raja Gopuram will be in the eastern side of temples in Tamil Nadu. But in Thiruchendur alone the Raja Gopuram is in the western side. It is said that the Raja Gopuram was not erected on the eastern side since the sea is very close in the eastern side.Thiruchendur Murugan temple Tiruchendur Murugan temple Thiruchendur Murugan temple Tiruchendur Murugan temple
