I am not aware of the Saint or his history so for me it was just a climb of about 4 floors for a great view of the sea & coastline.

I did not get to chance to visit the place directly because of low tides but only managed to view it from the Rock Memorial . The statue looks majestic from all angles and is quite huge

Its like the statue of Liberty in Kanyakumari. Its built right in the middle of the ocean next to the Vivekananda Memorial. This statue serves as a good location for people taking photographs of themselves wit the statue in its background. The statue is over a 100 ft tall tall and one should definitely see it. Unless you are scared... More

Its a recent addition, enormity of work done is visible. Construction in such a rough sea must have been tough. Visit by boat is worth and one must stay there for sometime to have a feel of a island!!

This is a newer tourist attraction which is unique in many ways. It commemorates a poet philosopher of yore and has been made by separately sculpting the parts and joining them on site. It is an imposing statue and one of the largest anywhere. One gets to go inside the statue and emerge at a height for a panoramic view... More

This is a part of the Vivekananda rock memorial visit. The statue is well maintained and the view from the higher floors is breathtaking as strong winds due to sea waves keeps hitting your face...!
