Home :: India Destination :: Tamil Nadu :: Kanyakumari

Vivekananda's RockKanyakumari, located in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, is au fond a temple town. It is the southernmost tip of India and also marks the confluence of the Indian Ocean, the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. Legend has it that Kanya Devi, a manifestation of goddess Parvati was to marry Lord Shiva. But, regrettably the wedding never took place due to his inability to arrive on time. And that's how the place came to be known as Kanyakumari (meaning virgin). The natural beauty, picturesque beach, temples and a number of other attractions at the place make your visit worthwhile.
