About Kanyakumari - Tamil Nadu Tourism

Kanyakumari, formerly known as Cape Comorin, is a famous tourist spot known for being the southernmost end of Tamil Nadu and the mainland’s end of India. Kanyakumari is an important travel destination that lies at the confluence of the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. Tourists love to visit Kanyakumari popular for its spectacular sunrise and sunset, especially, on the full-moon evenings - travellers can see the moon-rise and sunset at the same time – on both sides of the horizon.

An important tourist attraction here is the Kumari Amman temple, which is a Shakti peetha dedicated to a manisfestation of Goddess Parvati. In addition to this, there are the two rocky islets off the shore to Kanyakumari with Vivekananda rock memorial, dedicated to Swami Vivekananda who meditated here and a 133 feet tall statue of Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar. Another important tourist attraction here is the Gandhi memorial, which is built on the spot where ashes of Mahatama Gandhi were kept for public before immersion in the sea. Kanyakumari is a beautiful town with scenic beaches surrounded by hills and forests.
