Kanyakumari is the only place in India where one can witness the convergence of three seas - Bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean.
The place is famous for:
Swami Vivekanand Memorial- It is the only place in India where our famous and beloved saint Swami Vivekanand attained enlightenment.
2. Thiruvalluvar Statue- The interesting fact is that the 133 feet Thiruvalluvar statue height symbolises 133 chapters of the Tamil literature Thirukkal, while the 38 feet pedestal height represents the 38 chapters of virtue in Thirukkal.
3. Kanyakumari Beach - A large number of tourists gather to watch the magnificent sight of Sunrise and Sunset at Kanyakumari Beach.The sun rises beyond the Vivekanand Rock Memorial, making this place an ideal location for photography. One can spend time sitting on the rocks and playing around with waves and multicolored sand. The interesting fact about the multicolored sand is that one can recognise the three seas on the basis of color of the sand.
Best time to visit is during Chaitra Purnima when the sunset and moonrise is at the same time.
