Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Kanyakumari.

Vivekananda Rock Memorial in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, India, stands on one of two rocks located about 500 meters off mainland of Vavathurai, India’s southernmost tip. It was built in 1970 by the Vivekananda Rock Memorial Committee in honor of the visit of the great spiritual teacher Swami Vivekananda to the rock in December 1892 for deep meditation and enlightenment.

Nearby is the newly built 133 feet tall statue of Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar. Though there are several places of tourist-interest in the district, Kanyakumari is popular for its spectacular and unique sunrise and sunset.
