This place is called Kanyakumari, situated in South border of India. Arabian sea, Bay of Bengal & Indian Ocean all 3 seas met here at one place, you can literally see the waves coming from 3 different directions, its amazing to watch.

This statue is built in remembrance of the famous tamil poet, philosopher “Thiruvalluvar” who wrote the tamil literature “Thirukkural” which has been translated in many languages. The 133feet statue is standing on dry rocks in middle of the sea beside the famous Indian scholar, philosopher “Swami Vivekananda” memorial rock. Swami Vivekananda who lived short, traveled across America & Europe to introduce Yoga & Vedanta philosophies. He is speech in Chicago conference is being considered one of the best till date. In his memorial hall, we can meditate its so much peaceful. Pin drop silence will be maintained inside the hall.

One more thing, I was surprised after seeing the “Sunrise Calendar”, which is sculptured on the granite. Its damn accurate, our ancestors are really genius to calculate such things. They have done this before satellite era.

    Yup the sun calendar is great! wonder where we lost all that knowledge of ancestors.

    It is an amazing experience to watch three seas at the Kanyakumari. Sadly, the statues now remind me of Tsunami witnessed by this place a few years ago.

      Ancestors…they were bloody brilliant!!!!

      After Tsunami hit, the half of the sea gone inside till Vivekananda rock , i heard from my cousins who are living around. But, Tsunami doesn’t make big damage to the statue.

      Have you ever been to Kanyakumari??
