KANYAKUMARI

UNIQUENESS

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 pilgrimage centers of our Punya Bharat.  And with the recent addition of the splendid Vivekananda 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 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 savor 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, seem adoring the Mother Kanyakurrnari, it has been attracting orthodox holy bathers in lakhs during auspicious occasions, since time immemorial.
