Renovation and maintenance work was going on and we could only get a look at the Stature, which is a tribute to one of the most unsung individuals in the history of the World. His work tirukkuaral is a must read

It was anyway closed and we couldn't visit the premises but you get a good view from the shore and the Vivekanand Rock than you would from under the statue.

There is nothing to do. When we visited it was undergoing repair work. Boat ride is strictly not recommended. Waste of time, money and energy. Just take few photographs in the morning and go.
