If u stand under it, u can see it tall n standing @ 95 feet. At night it looks awesome as it is lighted. U can go up by stairs and see the entire ocean. What a view it is.

The sun and the wait make the travel to the memorial lilttle tedious. Avoid afternoons if travelign with the kids. The ferry service to the rock memorial covers this as well and hence there is a longer wait to and from the memorial.

Actually it is possible to get quite decent photos from the shore, but I would have preferred to arrive before 4pm so as to at least have had the opportunity to look at it up close.

Standing tall next to the Swami Vivekananda Rock Memorial, the Thiruvalluvar Statue is a must to visit. Beautifully located & built in the middle of the sea, very clean & well maintained. You also get a closer view of the Swami Vivekananda Rock Memorial from here. The Boat service to both the places is good. Watching far from the Shore... More

A colossal statue of the great poet Thiruvalluvar of ancient Tamil literature in the middle of the sea, it was built in the 1990's and finally inaugurated in 2000. It is located beside the Vivekananda Memorial and can be visited on the same boat ride after visiting the Memorial.

Wish that I'd read up on Thiruvalluvar before we visited. Quotes from his work on ethics line the walls inside the memorial and are a worthwhile read. Climbing up inside the statue takes you to the viewing platform at the level of the statue's feet.
