The massive Nellaiappar Temple, dedicated to lord Siva (Nellaiappar) is in the heart of Tirunelveli town.

Leaving the massive scale of the temple complex aside, what surprised me the most is the idol of lord Vishnu (Nellai Govindan) located right next to the Siva shrine. And of course there is a shrine dedicated to Ravana too!
