Located at the southern most tip of India, Kanyakumari is a place with breath-taking beauty and serene environment. Taking its name for an Indian Goddess, Kanyakumari is geographically the end of Indian mainland.
Kanyakumari looms large in India’s imagination — and with good reason. It is the southernmost tip of mainland India and is the meeting point of the three seas surrounding India: the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. If you stand on land’s edge here and let your imagination run wild, you can actually ‘feel’ you are at the tip of the world, and envision these three great swirling bodies of water merging into each other right at your feet. Then your coming to Kanyakumari has not been in vain. Though the idea of Kanyakumari is big, the town itself is tiny — everything is within a radius of 5 km. But this space is packed with hotels, tawdry restaurants and souvenir shops, making for a town less attractive than the site deserved. For most tourists who come to Kanyakumari, it is a place of worship. They come in droves to genuflect before Kanyakumari (literally, the Maiden Goddess), and the gigantic statues of Swami Vivekananda who meditated here, and Thiruvalluvar, the pithy Tamil poet — all of them on the seafront. Kanyakumari also offers spectacular sunrises and sunsets. It’s not everywhere that you can watch the sun rise from the sea in the morning and, later in the evening, plunge back into it. Take off to Suchindram, a charming temple. Or pack a picnic and head for the Dutch fort at Vattakottai, with its natural beach. There are a couple of other beaches too and though they have little infrastructure, the drive down is likely to be the nicest part of your holiday. Interior Kanyakumari is very reminiscent of Kerala and Goa, all paddy and backwaters and vast banana groves.

Kanyakumari is probably the most well know tourist destinations in India. Blessed with stunning coastline and serene forests, Kanyakumari hosts millions of tourists form across the globe every year. Thiruvalluvar Statue, Gandhi Memorial, Udayagiri Fort are few of the attractions of this serene town. The town is also famous for is marvelous view of the sunrise and sunset from the Murugan Kundram Hill. Also famous for the confluence of Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal, Kanyakumari is bound to leave any tourist awe-struck.
