A small coastal town to the north-west of Thiruvananthapuram, Varkala is famous for its 2,000-year old Janardana Swami Temple – an important Vaishnavaite shrine, and one of the most important temples in India, and an essential location for Ayurveda tourism in Kerala.
The temple is located close to the Papanasam beach whose holy waters are believed by Hindus to wash away sins; it is also known for its Ayurvedic treatment. The temple has an ancient bell from a Dutch ship that was wrecked on these shores long ago. The vessel suffered no casualties in the accident, so the captain of the Dutch vessel donated the ship’s bell to the temple in gratitude. 
Sivagiri, the nearby hill-top mausoleum of one of Kerala’s foremost social reformers, Sree Narayana Guru, is one of the most famous monuments in Kerala.
