Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / Kanyakumari District / Kanyakumari / Vivekananda Rock Memorial
Visit Vivekananda Rock Memorial, sitting iconically upon one of two rocks sticking out from the middle of the sea. Swami Vivekananda is said to have attained enlightenment on these rocks, with a towering statue overlooking the endless ocean built in his honor. Two meditation halls offer a surreal experience for the spiritual, with the isolated rocks offering the perfect atmosphere to clear one’s mind. The ground itself can get quite hot, which can be uncomfortable as you must take your shoes off.

Wonderful place. We as a family visited this place and we loved it. We went at around 4:00pm and the sun was bright and the winds were strong. The rock memorial is maintained well and very clean. You can sit peacefully and do meditation. The ferry will take you from the mainland to the island. The charges are Rs. 50/- per person. There is another landmark right next to the memorial in another island, that is Thuruvalluvar Statue. It was under renovation and no visitor was allowed to go near it. We can definitely enjoy the sound of waters and the strong breeze that embraces. The sea was rough because of the winds. The colors of the oceans were spectacular. It is a treat to watch sunset and sunrise from the same place. A must to visit for everyone.
Good place to visit in the month of Oct to Jan. Summer starts from Feb. Fairy to be hired to reach this spot. Ticket cost Rs 50, special ticket for Rs. 200. You can do meditation in the meditation room here. From here you can see the different colour of the sea and ocean merger. Arabian sea, Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal.
