Thirumullavaram തിരുമുല്ലവാരം is a part of Kollam UA in the state of Kerala, a state in south India. It is situated 6 km north of the city of Kollam. It is best known for a calm beach and safe beach for swimming. Discovery Channel has selected Thirumullavaram beach as one of the 10 beautiful beaches in the world...
The place got its name from "Thirumallanmar", the bodyguards of the erstwhile King of Travancore - Sri Marthanda Varma. Thirumullavarum, because of its scenic beauty, was one of the places where the King used to spend his leisure time. Another etymology says that, this place got the name in "THRETHAYUGA". SEETHA DEVI brought the MULLAPOO which were in his hair, due to give signale for Sreerama, by the time of the journey to Lanka by PUSHPAKA VIMANA under Ravana's custody. The MULLAPOO drop this place. So this place got THIRUMULLAVARAM
The major landmark of Thirumullavarum is the Sri Maha Vishnu Swamy temple. There is a temple pond behind the temple, few feet away from the Arabian sea. Thirumullavarum beach has been identified as a hot spot for Scuba diving because of its shallow water. During the Karkadaka Vaavu season - Malayalam era (July–August), more than 6 lakhs offer oblation to the manes every year to pray for their dear departed on the new moon day in the month of in Thirumullavarum beach. 'Thirumullavaram fete' is another program which is annually held there as part of the 10-day THIRUVONA MAHOTHSAVAM @ March or April celebrations. The traditional flag hoisting ritual will be held. The beach is immensely popular owing to the name from the Vishnu temple close to it. Folklore has it that the temple was one of the seven established by Parasuram who raised Kerala from the sea. Discovery Channel has selected Thirumullavaram beach as one of the 10 beautiful beaches in the world.
