Vivekananda Rock Memorial is a temple structure made on a rock where Vivekananda meditated in the 1800s and can be accessed via ferry services at Kanyakumari.

This is located on a big rock where Swami Vivekanand is said to have meditated. The memorial is built in the honour of Swami Vivekanand who was the great socio reformer of India. The memorial is a massive structure. It's well built and well maintained. The place is very calm and peaceful. There is a meditation hall.

Beware Q for the ferries are really long on holidays and Sundays. Management runs only 2 boats to and fro. Charges to view are 20rs per head. U... More
