The Thiruvalluvar rock, located next to the Vivekananda Memorial on the sea, is very majestic. All the 1330 Thirukkurals are inscribed in this monument's base.

Looking at it in first glance won't catch your attention, however, when you realize how giant it is in the middle of the sea, you would just look at it in awe.

You get to see this beside the Vivekananda memorial rock. I got a good view from pretty close beside it. But beware of the crowd during weekdays & holidays. Place could have been maintained and can be more clean!
