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.

Really a nice place... Anytime visit.this is a really cool place with good ambience and a very nice hang out place to be with. You can go with family or friends and enjoy a lot...very beautiful place and the food is also good . You can go anytime and have fun. Open on all days even on Saturdays and Sundays. But it's not opened all night. You'll love it. Go once and enjoy the place.
You need to rely on boats to reach this place. These boards are maintained by government. Pretty decent price. Once you reach there, no time restriction. You can spend as much time you want. It's peaceful to watch waves and water horizon.
I just love this place so much.. You must visit the place and enjoy the peacefulness prevails here...The rock is situated in the seashore.. Tourists from all over the world come here.... You will come to know about Swami Vivekananda's biography from books and novels available in book stalls.
The place is once in lifetime experience. The memorial is located in the the midst of Indian ocean and the point where Bay of Bengal and Arabian sea merges into Indian ocean. The place has a ticket booth for the ferry ride which takes you to memorial and a rock cur statue.” The ferry tickets are ₹35 for one person( regular charges) & ₹165 (special entry). The ₹165 ticket just offers you the privilege of entry into the same ferry first accompanied by the regular ticket. This ticket only offers privilege on entry to ferry and not on return or on the way to the statue. Ferry ride is fun and safe. The temple is fabulous. Photography inside is prohibited .enjoy..!!
