KANYAKUMARI TEMPLE-CLOSING OF THE EASTERN GATE

This 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.

Kanyakumari, 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.

Location : The temple ties in the Kanya Kumari town, accessible by four wheelers from Nagar Koil, Tamil Nadu.
