My Kanyakumari Visit (Cape Comorin)


Kanyakumari is a famous tourist destination situated at the southern tip of the Indian subcontinent. Kanyakumari is also known as Cape Comorin.
We started our journey to Kanyakumari from Trivandrum in the early morning. There is a nearly 85-kilometer journey from Trivandrum to Kanyakumari.

Trivandrum- Kanyakumari route is beautiful due to the sight of Western Ghat.


You can see a Church on the hill.

At Kanyakumari, we can have a clear view of sunrise and sunset. Thousands of people come to Kanyakumari just for watching the sunset and sunrise. 

Besides the sunrise and sunset, the confluence of three ocean bodies (the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean, and the Arabian Sea) is another attraction of Kanyakumari.



Vivekananda Rock

No one can miss Vivekananda Rock due to its spectacular sight and importance. This rock got the name by the memory of Vivekananda who had meditated at this rock for three days. 

For the memory of this incident, there is a meditation center at Vivekananda Rock.

Thiruvalluvar statue at Kanyakumari

It is a big statue of Thiruvalluvar, a great poet, and author of the Thirukkural.


This statue has 133 feet in height and 7000 tons of weight. In order to visit the Vivekananda rock memorial and Thiruvalluvar statue, we need to use a boat service.



Besides the Thiruvalluvar statue and Vivekananda Rock, the Mahatma Gandhi memorial also attracts tourists.
