Saw it from Vivekanand Rock Memorial. Very tall statue of Thiruvalluvar who was an eminent Tamil poet. Fantastic sculpture work by modern day artisans. This statue is very tall and seems to be overlooking the entire town of Kanyakumari.

If you decide to get down at Thilluvalur statue, be prepared to walk up a lot of stairs to reach the top. Otherwise there is not point going there. The views of the Vivekananda rock and kanyakumari coastline from the top are particularly appealing. Worth spending 20 minutes there.

The ferry takes you from the Vivekanand memorial to the statue ( situated on a rock next to it) and you realise the statue is larger than the memorial and yet it lacks the mystique of the memorial.You can avoid getting down from the ferry if you are pressed for time.

The view of Thiruvalluvar statue is now synonymous with Kanyakumari along with Vivekananda rock memorial. Thiruvalluvar was a great Tamil philosopher and poet, whose epic on ethics still inspires people far and wide. Great views of the statue can be seen from Vivekananda rock. It's lighted up during night till 10:30pm, looks surreal, especially with a roaring ocean behind.

This place has a great historical importance and the guide accompanying you in the boat will tell you all about it; which in fact is a very good to know information. You'll pass this statue while going to the Vivekanand Rock Memorial. It's a huge statue; however, I don't think we are allowed to see it from nearby.

The famous poet statue stands tall inside the sea when you visit the shore. You require boat to reach this place. Nice place to give a short visit for photography. Unfortunately we could not reach this place due to high tide in the sea. but still the view from vivekananda rock memorial was awesome.

Statue is worth visiting if time permits. Earlier boat ride to rock memorial used to take people here as well. Nowadays due to some work, it is closed.
