Inspect the archived documents in this picturesque two-storey mansion, which portray the philosophy and timeless work of this celebrated figure. Footwear is not allowed in the museum.

Where to stay in Kanyakumari

The end of the line, Kanyakumari has a number of accommodations to host those adventurous enough to come here. Located close to the train station, along the handily named Main Road, you'll find some popular budget options, including family-run guesthouses and simple hotels. Further to the south along the thoroughfare, things get a little more upmarket. Take a look at the beachside hotels, offering rooms from which you can watch the sunrise without getting out of bed.
