The statue is around 133 feet. Of course there was no way we could go and see the statue, but this one of the best memorial, we are very much delighted to see this state and thanks to the Government of Tamilnadu.

We passed by this enormous structure while on ferry boat. Well sculpted structure, standing tall in sea attracts your full attention. .

Dedicated to the great Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar, this is adjacent to the Vivekananada rock memorial However access to the statue was not being allowed when we went. An imposing sight even from a distance

It was closed when we were there and were informed that is it closed due to low tide and the boats won't be able to ferry people. It is right next to the memorial but we're unable to visit.
