account is corroborated by the government notifications available for
verification of its authenticity, if needed. So the belief is not a fabrication
of ill founded rumour nor mischievous propagation for self glorification. For
full grasp, of the glory of this ancient temple. Now read.
the -- abode of the Virgin Goddess Parvathi, situated at the southen tip of India
the Land's End occupies pride of place amongst the premier pilgrim centres of
our punya Bharat. And with the recent addition of the splendid Vivakananda Rock
Memorial, built to perpetuate the glory of the
sacred spot of meditation of that remarkable parivrajaka, it has transformed
itself into an inter-continental tourist centre of perennial importance.
Moreover, being the only spot on the sub-continent blessed with the unique
spectacle of sunset and moonrise simultaneously-the grand scenes of great
universal drama on full moon evenings, along with the splendid sight of the sun
and the moon facing each other on the Chitra pournami day in April, it has
became an inexhaustible source of eternal fascination for God-seekers. And
Nature lovers too, who visit only to watch this rare sight to savour an
experience of a life time. And by virtue of its geographical location as the
confluence of three seas- the Arabian sea, Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal, found
to be adoring the Mother Kanyakumari it has been attracting orthodox holy
bathers in lakes during auspicious occasions, since time immemorial. To add to
these, the legendary account of falling of lumps of earth in this region from
the Sanjivini Mount, when carried by mighty Hanuman to Lanka to saving Lakshmana's
life, it turned out to be the fertile soil for the sumptuous growth of priceless
medicinal plants. Agasthya's preference for settlement here due to abundant
availability of herbs, shrubs etc. lends credence and as such its importance is
on the increase with the passage of time. Above all, it is here on the off-shore
rock, the Virgin Goddess did penance to gaining powers for asuransamhara.
Abounding in many more such odd and an inspiring excellences, this Cape Comorin
sacred region gained one of the most coveted places in the history and legend of
our Akhand Bharat.
