Tucked away into the extreme Southern corner of India in Tamil Nadu, Tirunelveli (Nellai) beckons with its grand churches and temples. The city is also amongst India's oldest and boasts a rich culture.

Some of the most prominent religious landmarks dotting Tirunelveli (Nellai) include Christ Church, Holy Trinity Cathedral, and Nellaiappar Temple. The Christ Church remains a major church, while the Holy Trinity Cathedral is a huge structure capable of accommodating some 6000 members at once. Nellaiappar Temple is a twin temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi. The temple has two gopurams or towers and it is in the centre of Tirunelveli (Nellai) city. Surrounding the gopurams is a garden that was constructed in 1756 and in the garden is a square Vasantha Mandapam with 100 pillars. The musical pillars in the Mani Mandapam which produce sound in various pitches when struck (7th century AD by Nindrasir Nedumaran or Koon Pandyan), the Somavara Mandapam, the 1000 pillared hall, and the Tamra sabha with intricate wood work, and the Vasantha Mandapam are some of the noteworthy points in this temple. Another temple is Sri Varadharaja Perumal Temple, this temple is located on the banks of the perennial river Thamirabarani, in Tirunelveli (Nellai) Junction. The temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is one of the most ancient temples of the country. Sri Alzhiya Mannar Rajagopala Swamy Temple is an ancient temple which is about 1000 years old.
