Since the jetty trip is clubbed to this place also we have to go to this place after the Vivekanada Rock. This place needs attention by the concerned.

This is adjacent to the Vivekananda Rock. I somehow feel this should have not been so close to the Vivekananda Rock - looks to be challenging the rock which has a significant historical importance to Indians. The Statue is grand and the climb to the feet of the Statue is quite comfortable.

Can appreciate the effort that has gone to build the stature in the ocean, can feel how the Tsunami would have affected if you stay a linger longer. Imagine that you are in a place where three oceans meet. It is magical
