As mentioned in the title, nothing much to see in this place. The view from this place was good as it was overseeing the other side of beach. Which is the Kanyakumari town

The 133 ft tall statue of Thiruvallur is a great attraction at the Kanyakumari. The Thirukkural is a famous collection of Thiruvallur writings. Thsi statue of Thiruvallur represent Wealth and Pleasure. The 133 feet represent the 133 chapters in the Thirukkural. It is sure that a visit would be really a beautiful experience.
