Vivekanand rock memorial is a must visit place in Kanyakumari. Travelling in a motor boat to Vivekanand rock memorial is a lifelong memory.

Only issue is the Q for the boat ride. IF you want to take special line, its just a waste, better take the normal Q which moves faster. Once in the boat there is no differentiation.

This ought to be a place for reflection and solitude. A place to meditate amidst the songs of the sea and ocean. In reality this is an overrated, overcrowded tourist stop. From the mainland the sight of the rock and its small temple is almost...More
