This was one of the place where the govt. Boat drops you in your journey from Kanyakumari beach to Vivekananda rock.This place is good and you can go all the way to top by using stairs.View is good and you can click many pics there.Though this place is very hot during day time

Nice statue on a rock on Bay of Bengal located next to Vivekananda Rock on Kanyakumari. This is dedicated to great tamil poet Thiruvalluvar and was built recently in last decade.

It is very good to see the Thiruvalluvar Statue in sea (full of water) and placed at 133 feet height.Even during tsunami wind the sea waves only touches the statue.It has a good attraction to all the tourist to know about indian poet Thiruvalluvar

Just adjacent to Vivekananda Rock Memorial. The boats skip this if the tides are high or sea is turbulent. The wind atop is worth experiencing. The views are exhilarating. The statue is huge and one can climb up the stairs inside it.

The same ship drops you to this statue on the return journey. Nothing much to see or do. Beware of the floor because it is oily and slippery. I think they put some oil on the floor to make it water proof.

Thiruvalluvar statue can be seen perched on the rock by the side of Vivekanand Rock Memorial. This is the statue of great Tamil poet and philosopher - Thiruvalluvar. It's a marvelous sculpture. This statue dominates Kanyakumari and can be seen from any place in Kanyakumari town.

It was a good place where we could spend time off the coast in Knayakumari. Also to get to this location we need to take a cruise which was also a good time spent.
