Nestled on the beach next to a large banyan tree around the bend from Uppuveli, the beautiful, candy-colored Salli Kovil is a small Hindu temple in an impossibly picturesque location. Easily accessible, it's a great spot to explore with a small creek filled with fishing boats on one end, and a small hill perfect for scrambling up to enjoy the view over Uppuveli, with Swami rock in the distance.

Interests and Areas of Expertise:
I love it all! As a former scuba instructor my big passion is diving and marine life, but the history nerd in me revels in archaeological sites, historic buildings, and quirky anecdotes. When I'm not underwater or channeling Indiana Jones, you can usually find me wandering through local markets, or seeking out the best in local cuisine.
Hours Open to Visitation
