The Vivekananda faced many delays in its construction but it was finally constructed in the 1970s. The monument is homage to Swami Vivekananda who was a Spiritual leader as well as a Modern Indian thinker and Philosopher.

His memorial is not just a bunch of photos and artefacts from his life. The Memorial is a living breathing organization where youngsters who wish to take part in social service are trained under the system of Vivekananda’s teachings. There are places to meditate and the building has been constructed keeping in mind the cultural aspects of Vivekananda’s teachings.

It is a beautiful building well worth visiting due to its importance as it honors a modern thinker of India. It is believed that the great Swami would sit and mediate on this rock. Even though this fact has been disputed it is sure to fill just about anyone with a sense of calmness and serenity and help them meditate.

  • Elegant. The view and breeze is awesome. Even though we reached there in the afternoon, it was cool in the corridors. Spend some time in the meditation hall. Swami Vivekananda’s literature is available. India and we as people would become a lot better if we emulated just a fraction of his teachings. Must visit

  • If you are interested in Vivekananda, this is the best place else it's just like a small boat ride to an island. The boarding point for board is called as southern last tip of Indian Land as per google. - You can expect an hour of wait time to get your chance to get tickets and board on the boat - boats are not managed well and you should avoid taking elderly people with you. There is a steep walk once you reach the island and heart patient cannot walk. - While return, you again get a long queue and that queue is build up to washrooms area which can be terrible. - washrooms are not managed well. - Instead of waiting in queue, enjoy the view of sea, it's amazing. - The place is crowded always.

  • Very attractive place in the ocean near Kanyakumari. One can reach by boat paying Rs.34 per person both ways. The day Swami Vivekananda visited this rock may have been quiet and secluded but it has now become a bit crowded. Anyway the place worth visiting!!!!

  • Monument of Swami Vivekananda was build on 1970 to honor him. The rock has been surrounded by sea. We have to reach this rock by passenger boat/ship operated by poompuhar shipping. Most beautiful place which I have ever visited. Been there more than 50 times at least in my lifetime.

  • This was one of the most beautiful of south of India. Being the southern most part of Indian peninsula. It is infact the only place in India where you can see the beautiful sunrise and sunset where sun is melting with the water and touching the horizon. the place is not expensive. you will enjoy the local transport of that area and the best part about the place are the people of that area. they are hospitable and very kind.
