Tamil Nadu was on entire lockdown on weekends and weekdays they don't allow visit to tourist sites. Also this season it's crowded with Ayyappa devotees and they are a huge crowd. The entire place is in a mess. The beach road could have been maintained in a better way. people still defeacate in open and al the grass lands nearby are stinky and cannot go there .

Time will pass.... just like that at this attraction. There is a meditation hall, in which, we can meditate peacefully. Better to go in winter season and avoid summer season.

Have visited Vivekananda rock memorial many times. Ferry service runs from 8 am to 4 PM and normally the waiting time for ferry is 1 to 2 hours. We bought special ticket for ferry which was introduced recently and is sold for 200 rs against normal rate of 50 rs. There was no waiting time for special ticket. The place is usually crowded and ferry service to thiruvalluvar statue nearby the vivekananda rock was suspended the day we visited due to high tides. The atmosphere in vivekananda rock memorial was great. There was absolutely pin drop silence in the meditation hall. It is a good place for photography with great view of sea and church in shore.

calm and quiet

if you are looking for a peaceful memorial ... its this place ... the temple of goddess Kanyakumari is also very divine. The monument of the poet Thiruvallur is amazing . also the books available for self leave you enriched.
