A place apt for relaxation and pilgrimage visits. Magnific hills, impressive beaches, splendid rivers and meandering rivulets Tamilnadu is one destination that is visited by both the travelers i.e. those looking for a religious place to visit and those who just want to relax. The city named after the Kanyakumari temple is dedicated to Kumari Amman and is a great pilgrim destination.
Kanyakumari beach is the confluence spot of all three beaches Indian, Arabian, and Bay of Bengal. The rocky bridge along the shore makes it very difficult and dangerous for us to swim or go interior. A man made wall separates the sea from the land and visitors are not allowed to go beyond this line. Even standing from there and watching the fierce waves dashing against the rock gives us goose bumps. This place is the apt spot to see the enchanting sun rise and sun set. If you overlook the sea from the light house there, you may get a panoramic view of Kanyakumari.
Vivekanandha fort and Thiruvalluvar Kottam stands majestically inside the sea, you can take a boat trip to those forts and have a splendid time.
Kanyakumari district, which lies in the southernmost tip of Peninsular India, is famous for its majestic hills, virgin beaches, pristine rivers and meandering rivulets. The district has a fragrance of architecture culture and customs of neighboring Kerala mixed with the rich deep traditions, culture and architecture of Tamil Nadu. However, for want of promotional campaign and lack of basic amenities most of the tourists coming to this district return back after seeing just Kanyakumari and Padmanabhapuram Palace. It was at this juncture that the district administration decided to take up tourism promotion initiatives in a major way. Attempt has been made to put up basic amenities at the virgin beautiful spots so as to facilitate the inflow of the tourists.
