Probably the only thing worth seeing in Kanyakumari. Was driving down the South of India for my travels. Stopped by this place in the afternoon around 2pm on route to Kerala. This is the southern most tip of India. Went through the fast queue to get a ticket onto the ferry and to see the monuments. 10min ferry ride and... More

The view of this Memorial from our hotel window in the daytime was great but in the evening when it was lit up it was just beautiful. The whole place is very serene and beautiful.

The travel itself to Vivekananda rock memorial on the ferry is too good. As far as i remember, the ferry costs around Rs 400 to/fro together. Its a very crowded place but very well maintained. So much time can be spent in the meditation hall in peace. The scenic view of Indian ocean with milky waves are beautiful. But it... More
