Kanyakumari has been a large centre for art and religion for centuries. It was also a region of great trade and commerce. It was ruled by the Cholas, the Cheras, the Pandyas and the Nayaks. The architectural beauties of the temples in the area are the works of these rulers.

Christianity arrived in South India around AD 52 through St. Thomas, one of the twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ. Islam is said to have entered the southern part of India through Kanyakumari during the early part of the eighth century AD through traders and missionaries who came through sea-routes. Islam, Christianity and Jainism have also contributed to the architectural wealth and literary inheritance of the region.
