the noticeable landmark of the statue of this great soul standing tall amidst the lashing waves all around is truly a sight worth seeing. The statue is visible from all edges of the city.

Standing less than 50 meters away from the Vivekananda rock memorial is the Thiruvalluvar statue. This is a gigantic statue and dwarfs the Vivekananda rock. If one chooses to go to the Vivekananda rock than the company will drop you off to Thiruvalluvar rock as its part of the ticket cost and definitely worth the visit (the only reason the... More

This is an awesome looking place right in the middle of actually nowhere! This memorial/statue and another temple stand in the middle of the ocean somewhat and you need to take a small ferry that takes you to this place. It seriously looks awesome from the shore. Here is why we did not go... the queue to this place without... More

Swami Vivekananda Memorial and Triruvalluvar statue are located next to each other. The ferry that you take form kanyakumari first takes you to the memorial and once done with the memorial it takes you to this statue. In case people are interested in going to the statue they can go or else proceed back after seeing the memorial. I would... More

Very huge statue in granite (multi pieces of granite cemented into one huge sculpture) constructed by the famous sculpture "STHAPATHI" Ganapathi. The famous Tamil poet THIRUVALLUVAR who authored the moral analecta THIRUKURAL for all human beings, considered to be the treasure trove for humanity irrespective of reloigion, caste, creed, language, culture and civilization. All the 1330 Thirukural couplets are carved... More
