“No Ferry Service.”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

There is no ferry to Thiruvalluvar Statue.
There was no lighting Service during the night too, when we visited.
The statue depicts female side of Thiruvalluvar, with the curvy body style.
Can be viewed from the hotels at the beach and Vivekananda Rock.

“An important landmark ...”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This statue is visible from the Kanyakumari Beach. Stands tall at 133 feet very next to the Vivekananda memorial. However, boats are not taking visitors there nowadays.

The sunrise view is simply amazing. This is an important landmark in India where the 3 seas/oceans meet -> Bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean.

“Good from far but far from good.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The day we arrived we were told the ferry couldn't stop at the statue because the waves were too dangerous however speaking with a local they told us it hadn't been opened for months. You'll find a lot of excuses in India despite this place being a "holy" site. If you're not an Indian then you've probably seen other statues that were much more impressive. It's an interesting sight as it is the most southern tip of India, but I wouldn't spend more than 30mins here as there's nothing to do in the area.
