Must see, need to use the ferry, a bit cumbersome with life jackets and the rush, but then the breeze on top and the view is amazing.

Looks massive and nice. Well planned in terms of location. I hope the government arranges illumination at night which will make this a sight to look out from the shore. Not advised for folks who have issues in climbing 3-4 flight of stairs. A paid lift facility can also be arranged.

Great view around this place. When we went strong breeze was there and it made walking around difficult. We sat under the statue and relaxed and watched the ocean.

It's really a wonderful masterpiece that every Tamilian must boast of. The towering statue engulfed by the ocean is a feast to the eyes. Hats off to the sculptor of this magnificent statue.

We started our ferry by 3PM where 4PM is the closing time.... We spent around 1.30 hrs in Vivekanadar rock.... Return ferry bypassed Thiruvalluvar statue and directly taken us to shore.... Most of the time will be spent on queue.... Dont miss it like us...

Statue is beautifully designed and looks grand against the ocean. While sun rise it looks as if it is standing in front of the sun. Seriously looks great view at the tip of south India. Feeling great ..

The Thiruvalluvar statue is 133 ft tall which depicts the 133 athigarams in Thirukkural written by him. Thirukkural is one of the most ancient literary works in Tamil. When we visited Kanyakumari, this place was being renovated so couldn't get a close look at it :( We watched from the ferry while going to the Rock memorial.
