Vivekananda Rock Memorial - Review

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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Kanyakumari itinerary 1 day.

Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Kanyakumari Reviews

  • Wonderful place on the earth! When you stand there and face the sea, you will realize the world. Swami Vivekananda's clarion call of spiritual nationalism can be seen on his face in the statue here. Meditation hall and book stalls are maintained neatly. The administration tries to maintain litter free zone here. It should be the public who should cooperate much on this.

  • -Amazing and picturesque place! -A short but thrilling boat trip through the high waves will take you to this memorial. -Ticket costs Rs. 34/- If you fine long queue, you can buy VIP ticket which is Rs. 169/- -The place is one of a kind, with a special meditation room in middle of the sea. -The memorial is clean and well-maintained. -There is a sun dial available at the back side of the memorial which shows the sunrise and sunset timings of each month, an interesting thing to have a look at!

  • One of the most visited and historical places in south India. A lovely sunrise greets you if you happen to reach there before 6am. Ferry rides start later during the day. Very often it's quite hectic and the queue is pretty long so the best way is to go for special ticket but you will have to take the common line while coming back. The rocks and the memorial itself is worth a visit and the never ending ocean meeting the skyline at the horizon is sure to take your breath away. Definitely worth a visit. :)

  • It was nice experience.... Sitting surrounded by sea.. no worries can cross that water. Mediate as much you want. Feel the wind touching your soul. Soak the sun. Just peace which you can't get everywhere.

  • Must visit place in one's life time... Thrilling boat experience with high tides.. Enjoy the view of the southern most tip of India... Spend quality time in the meditation room. The chant 'Om' will give you chills... Peaceful in one word...
