Kanyakumari is the southernmost end of India, located in the state of Tamilnadu around 90 kilometers away from Trivandrum. It is one of the most exotic tourist places to visit in south India. If you are travelling up to Trivandrum then we recommended visiting this place. Kanyakumari beaches are famous for watching both sunrise and sun set.

The Most famous place to visit in Kanyakumari is the Vivekananda Rock Memorial built in honor of Swami Vivekananda –the great social reformer who fought against religious inequality in India. The memorial can be reached on a ferry and has a temple and meditation hall which provides a serene opportunity for meditation in the background of fast blowing winds and vivid colors of Seas. The place is well maintained, rejuvenating and gives a positive energy. The feel of gentle sea breeze and sea waves smashing the hard rock is awesome.
