A holy town with village ambiance blessed by Lord Muruga, Thiruchendur is located in the district of Toothukudi in the state of Tamil Nadu in India. The town is a prime attraction to Hindu pilgrims due to the presence of highly revered Murugan temple by the seashore. It is one of the Arupadai Vedu (the six holy abodes) of Lord Muruga. This temple is in a natural setting with the beach as its backdrop. Senthil Aandavar (Lord Muruga) with his consort Valli and Deivayanai temple are major shrines here.

Thiruchendur has fertile red soil making it suitable for plantations and crop cultivations. Thiruchendur, nestled among the dry arid Theri forests, is known for cashew plantation, thickly planted with Palm trees and various other tropical woody trees and plants.

The red soil of this town is believed to be due to the bloodshed by the killing of a thief as ordered by the local God. Folk tales and legends tell that one very powerful local Lord (God) named Karkkuuvel Ayyanar ordered his man Vanniaraja to kill any one who intended to steal the property of other people. Later Vanniaraja killed a man who tried to steal and the blood of the thief fell on the ground making the soil red. Due to this folk tale, Thiruchendur populace never attempt to involve in thefts.

This holy town still preserves the traditional rituals and customs. Notwithstanding this fact, there modern developments have made inroads in to the heart of the city through shopping malls, restaurants, hotels and many high sky architectural structures.
