Varkala beach (also known as papanasam beach) is situated on the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram District. Varkala beach is called Papanasam beach because it is believed that a dip in the water destroys all kind of sin. Hence, people prefer this shore for their offering of "vavubali" in honour of ancestors and relatives whose souls are in rest. After the offering of "vavubali", people visit Sree Janardhana temple and get done "Thilakahoma", a pooja done for the sublimation of the departed souls. The 2000 years old Sree Janardhana Swami temple and the mineral springs are the main attractions of this place. Sree Janardhana Swami is believed to be the incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu. The mineral spring near the beach is considered to have medical and curative properties and the people who visit here, never come back without drinking the holy water from the spring. Sometimes they like to have a dip in the holy water too.This post is taken from www.DreaCoasts.com
