Kanyakumari is one of the most striking places of the India. Kanyakumari, the southernmost tip of Indian mainland, is not just a meeting point of three water bodies but also an amalgamation of different cultures, religions and ideas developed over centuries.
Watch the Sunrise and Sunset:
Priceless sunrises and sunsets, on Kanyakumari’s liquid horizon, are among the finest in India. Sunrise, alongside the Thiruvalluvar statue, is arguably the most majestic of the two. However, sunsets are particularly special on full moon nights, when the moon rises from the sea opposite the setting sun at about the same time. The following morning, it’s possible to see the sun rising and full moon setting together. Sunsets into the sea are best viewed from the beach during December to February.
Visit Vivekananda Rock Memorial:
Revered Indian poet and philosopher Swami Vivekananda visited Kanyakumari in 1892, towards the end of an extensive trip across India. His transformation into an influential leader and reformer is attributed to the three days he spent meditating on a large offshore rock, where Goddess Kanya Kumari is said to have carried out part of her penance by standing on one foot.A memorial was built on the rock in 1970 to honor Swami Vivekananda. It consists of a pavilion with a life-size bronze statue of the Swami, a hall with information about his life, and a meditation area. There’s also a carving of the Goddess’s foot on the rock.
Multicoloured Beach Sand:
Well, this is something that will certainly interest you. Yes, the sand of Kanyakumari Beach bears different colours. As per local legends, it is believed that the remains, such as grains, from the unsuccessful wedding of Lord Shiva and Goddess Kanyakumari, turned into stones and sand when they were left unused. The presence of these grains is responsible for the multicoloured beach sand.
No Cinema Theatres:
If you are a movie enthusiast and love to watch movies in theatres, then Kanyakumari wouldn’t be a perfect destination for you. Despite being one of the most popular and fastest-developing tourism centres, it doesn’t have any cinema theatre. You need to travel all the way to the nearby town of Nagercoil to watch a movie in a theatre. Nagercoil is located at a distance of about 20 km from Kanyakumari.
