A memorial tribute to Mahatma Gandhi contained in a very nice building. Mainly just photo's of Gandhi with various people and dignitaries and a pedestal where his ashes rested. Well worth a visit though for the view of Kanyakumari. Great place to get some photo's.

Visit it because you are there. There isnt anything much watching though but since it is on the beach itself, why miss?

The inside of the memorial is rather bare, except for some interesting historical photographs of Gandhi but since this is close to the jetty to the Vivekananda Rock Memorial, it's worth a quick visit.
