Kanyakumari, the abode of the Virgin Goddess Parvathi, situated at the southern tip of India, the Land's end occupies pride of place amongst the premier pilgrim centres of our Punya Bharath. And with the recent addition of the splendid Vivekannda Rock Memorial, built to perpetuate the glory of the sacred spot of meditation of that remarkable parivraja ka, 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 moon rise simultaneously, the grand scenes of great universal drama, along with the splendid sight of the Sun and Moon facing each other on the Chirta Pournami day in April, it has became an inexhaustible source of eternal fascination for god-sekers and Nature-lovers too, who visit only to watch his rare sight to savour an experience for a life time. And by virtue of its geographical location at the confluence of three seas, the Arabian sea, Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal, which seem adoring the Mother Kanyakumari, it has been attracting orthodox holy bathers in lakhs during auspicious occasions, since it is here, on the off shore rock the Virgin Goddess kumari Amman did penance to gaining power for asura samhara. Abounding in many more such odd and awe inspiring excellences, this Cape Comorin sacred region gained one of the most coveted places in the history and legend of our Akhanda Bharat.
