About Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Kanyakumari

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.

Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Kanyakumari Reviews

  • The best tourist attractions of the kanyakumari. The boating to memorial and from the memorial is smooth but gets crowded on weekends. The place is very well maintained. The memorial gives a good view of the nearby coastline and the mighty ocean. The domain of explorers who look for tranquility and serenity. A wonderful place where two sea and one ocean meet. It feels very relaxing and soothing while facing the very speedy winds there. One can see the sunrise as well as sunset there.Overall a great experience to visit.

  • Very good memorial of Swami Vivekananda. It has a meditation hall inside where you can meditate and beware!! YOU CAN'T BRING SMALL CHILDREN INSIDE THE HALL ALSO SHOULD PUT YOUR PHONE IN SILENT MODE. Moreover, it has some stalls inside where you can purchase different things related to Swami Vivekananda (such as books, statue and pictures). Overall, a very calm and peaceful place to visit.

  • Enjoy the ferry service. Put your ass down near the entry door of Ferry so that water waves could splash at you. There is a space for meditation. Please do meditate there. If you don't know how to meditate, just close your eyes, stay calm, observe the silence and try to observe your breathing pattern if possible. You'll feel the difference.

  • In morning there is so much crowd u have to get in line to reach their via ferry and there is also special entry ticket which will give you 1 entry to ferry in starting of ferry only then it's on you whenever you want to come back by any ferry. It's so clean there. You have to open your shoes to enter rock memorial.

  • Fantastic memorial dedicated to Swamy Vivekananda. Needs to be reached on a boat. The memorial is clean and well-maintained. The construction is fantastic and the best part is the views! It is surrounded by sea water on all sides and provides a fantastic experience for nature lovers and photographers.
