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. Happy to cherish here his everguiding words in the Parliament of World Religions "He (Krishna the God) taught that a man ought to live in this world like a lotus leaf, which grows in water but is never moistened by water; so a man ought to live in the world — his heart to God and his hands to work."
This place will make you feel like you've come into another part of the world. Ultimate peaceful place! Very neat and clean. Devi Kanyakumari temple is also there. Main temple is a place where you will definitely want to spend some time without uttering a single word. Standing on the backside of the temple one can find the sky and the ocean have just merged.
One of the best place in India further southern most place of India. One and most probably only one place in India where Sunrise ( Way of Bengal) and Sunset (Arabian Sea) both can be seen. This place is one of unique where Way of Bengal, Indian ocean and Arabian Sea meets. The view from Vivekananda rock is just awesome.
270 degrees view of horizon is mesmerizing. It's the southern tip of India. Floor in memorial is little sticky. White coating on footpath makes walking on hard open to sun floor comfortable. Ferries looked outdated.
A must visit place in South India. It is the southernmost point of mainland India. A Five minute boat ride to the rock memorial in the ocean is amazing. It's a peaceful place surrounded by ocean. You can get the best view of surrounding areas from the Vivekananda rock memorial
