Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Kanyakumari

4.5
Visit Vivekananda Rock Memorial, sitting iconically upon one of two rocks sticking out from the middle of the sea. Swami Vivekananda is said to have attained enlightenment on these rocks, with a towering statue overlooking the endless ocean built in his honor. Two meditation halls offer a surreal experience for the spiritual, with the isolated rocks offering the perfect atmosphere to clear oneโ€™s mind. The ground itself can get quite hot, which can be uncomfortable as you must take your shoes off.
