This is a must see attraction if you are visiting Kanyakumari. And as per my experience, try visiting the place before sunset. The view is excellent and really good for taking photos. The day is really hot and humid and get prepared for sun burns.

The second stop after the Vivekanda memorial. The same ticket to the Vivekanda memorial will hold good for this memorial too. The sayings of the saint is embossed inside the chambers. You can climb up to the feet of the statue. A must place to visit if you are in Kanyakumari.

Get a boat ride to visit this. This is a very fine piece of architecture. If you are visiting Kanyakumari you must visit this place also. You will see the pic of this statue if anyone is at Kanyakumari. The tall statue of 133ft looks very good and to surprise to see it in the middle of sea

Kanyakumari was disappointing in general, and this statue was no exception. It contained no artistic or spiritual import that we could see. There are so many amazing things to see in India, but this is not one of them. If your time is limited, you can easily skip Kanyakumari.

Nothing to see or do except to raise your eyes and assess the height . Took us the total of 10 mins but because it is on the itinerary of the vivekanand memorial it gets its share of tourists

This is the statue of saint Thiruvalluvar, who was a writer of couplets in Tamil. he is famous for many works, and is treated on par with *dohe* from Kabir and Raheem. Brace yourself for some amazing photos against the morning skies.
