Travel to this place is mostly closed throughout the year due to tides. But, you can see it very clearly from rock memorial and throughout all the points in KK. Looks good.

This statue was built in the memory of the famous Tamil poet. the statue is very big and you can get a nice view if you see from the endpoint of the Kanyakumari .when you visit that Island you can only see the legs as it is very big statue.

Had been to Kanyakumari a few times, but was only during the last time we could go near Thiruvalluvar Statue. Bad climate and high tides kept us away in the earlier visits. It is an amazing construction made on a rock adjacent to the famous Vivekananda rock at Kanyakumari. Definitely worth visiting

Even though there was no way we could go to the statue due to heavy crowed, there is a good view from main land. Also from the shore this statue looks great. I am glad that Tamil Nadu government has built this in remembrance of such a great tamil poet Thiruvalluvar.

When I was making my trip to Kerala and tamilnadu ,I was not sure to visit Kanyakumari ,as when I saw on Internet there were not many places to visit. But my mother was willing to see that since from childhood so we decided to go there and believe me Kanyakumari is just amazing. We have to take a ferry... More

I am amazed at the size of the statue. The boat trip to the island and island by itself and the statue along with beautiful view of the city, ocean and vivakananda..memorial etc is too good. Plus you get a feel of you are in the south most point of India.. great

Thank RB1364
