2. Swami Vivekananda Was Here For Nirvana!It is said that Swami Vivekananda, the legendary Indian Monk came all the way to Kanyakumari, stepped off the Indian mainland to reach a tiny rocky island little farther into the ocean and sat down there to meditate.Vivekananda Rock Memorial is where the saint is said to have attained enlightenment in later years of 19th century.
Let spirituality envelop you at The Vivekananda Rock Memorial.If Swami Vivekananda were alive today, he’d probably choose another spot to meditate seeing the number of travellers this memorial attracts. The architecture here is representative of different styles and this amalgamation is a major factor that attracts travellers here.
There is a jetty that takes you to rock memorial and tiruvalluvar statue for Rs 34.The view of the ocean,tiruvalluvar statue and few of the destinations in mainland is quite beautiful from here. Plus the ocean breeze and sound of waves.It was an awesome start to my trip
