Sightseeing

Kumari Amman or Kanyakumari Temple is built at the edge of the sea, where poor Kanya waited for her groom to arrive. The virgin is worshipped in the form of an exquisitely beautiful black stone idol, bedecked in silks, gold and diamonds. Kanya’s glittering nose ring shines so brightly that it could be seen from afar. Its radiance sent ships off course, crashing on the rocky shoreline below the temple. So many ships met their untimely end that the eastern door to the shrine was closed off; and is opened only five days each year. The temple also houses two smaller shrines dedicated to the goddess’s friends and playmates, Vijayasundari and Balasundari.

East of the temple are two huge rocky outcrops. Sri Padaparai is sacred because it contains an imprint of Kanyakumari’s foot. The Rock Memorial temple complex built by the Ramakrishna Mission in 1970 marks the place where the famous Indian philosopher saint Swami Vivekananda meditated. Ferries take visitors to the temple, which has a remarkably serene atmosphere despite the crowds that come to see it.

Designed like a temple, the Gandhi Memorial commemorates the final resting place of the urn containing the Bapu’s ashes, before its immersion in the sacred confluence of three oceans. On the 2nd October (Gandhi’s Birthday) the first rays of the morning sun fall on the exact spot where the urn was kept for the public to pay homage to the Father of the Indian nation.

The Government Museum has a collection of sundry objects like old coins, whalebones, tribal objects, bronze sculptures, and woodcarvings.

Shopping

Handcrafted trinkets, seashell art, palm leaf drawings are available all over. Shopkeepers will try to palm off beads as authentic coral, so be wary. All prices are negotiable so bargain hard!

Eating Joints

Restaurants in Kanyakumari offer a variety of cuisine. There are plenty of places to eat at on the jetty road near the Kanyakumari Temple.
