This is a part of the Vivekananda rock memorial visit. The statue is well maintained and the view from the higher floors is breathtaking as strong winds due to sea waves keeps hitting your face...!

coverage area near the statue too small to enjoy the full statue, we can enjoy the full height of the statute from a far distance.

this monument although new is much needed to make people understand and recognize other cultures are of equal importance, especially for the modern indian who is anti-english and doesn't consider other national languages.

Since the jetty trip is clubbed to this place also we have to go to this place after the Vivekanada Rock. This place needs attention by the concerned.

This is adjacent to the Vivekananda Rock. I somehow feel this should have not been so close to the Vivekananda Rock - looks to be challenging the rock which has a significant historical importance to Indians. The Statue is grand and the climb to the feet of the Statue is quite comfortable.

Seeing every where sea around, Vivekananda Memorial at some hundred feet away from statue and City view from this place is memorable.

Can appreciate the effort that has gone to build the stature in the ocean, can feel how the Tsunami would have affected if you stay a linger longer. Imagine that you are in a place where three oceans meet. It is magical
