KANYAKUMARI

The flooring is made of well-polished red granite slabs, and its spick and span along with divinity pervading the entire Mandapam bends heads in veneration.  The mirror like radiance reflects the imposing statue and compels veneration.  The whole Memorial resembles the holy Ramakrishna Temple at Belur by its peculiar location and sanctity, it is held in highest esteem as an indispensable visit-worthy place both for commoners and followers of Ramakrishna Order living all over the globe.  Next to it lies the spacious Dhayana Mandapam adorned with the symbol of AUM inscribed on a mirror glass inset in the lighted rear wall of the Pranava pitham.  Its tranquility and serenity make the visitors squat for a while meditating on AUM.  Down below, there are about half a dozen stalls selling books, photos, dollars etc to the desiring adorers. 

Around the temple on that spacious Rock arrangements are made to stand and stare at the infinite charms of the Blue-god, who seems rising, falling, racing and dashing against the massive Rock, perhaps due to unbounded joy at the merging of seas, or at the inexplicable joy of making Jalabishekam to the feet of the Virgin Goddess.  It is indeed a sight for aesthetes that keep them for hours, particularly at the Dawn and Dusk.  In the evenings, the beauty of the sights around like the light-house sweeping bright shafts of light over the shores, the Lady Ransom Church piercing into the blue sky with its tall white steeples amidst the greenery and lovely broad shores with congregations of bathers afford delightful sights. 

This magnificent Rock Memorial on tine mid-sea is connected with main land by ferry service, run by Tamil Nadu Government.  It collects a fee of Rs.3/- for to and fro, and works between 7 AM to 11 AM and 2 PM to 5 PM.  This exhilarating experience of the visit remains locked up in memory to be cherished for ever.
