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.

  • Awesome Historical place. It is on the rock in the middle of the sea. It's a huge 133 feet high Thiruvalluvar Statue, which has been installed by Tamil Nadu Government.
  • Its a big statue of thiruvalluvar near vivekananda rock. Boats are available to this rock also. Well maintained statue, good to see in night.
  • Really nice place. Must visit if you going kanyakumari. It is on the rock in the middle of the sea. You will need a ferry to reach here. I visited in April 2017. To and fro ticket cost Rs 35. Statue is well carved and it is very tall. You can view the same statue from sunrise point too.
  • It's a huge 133 feet high Thiruvalluvar Statue, which has been installed by TN Govt. The ferry that is used to take tourists to Vivekananda Rock will take you to Thiruvalluvar Statue too. Currently [May 2017] this monument is under maintenance, hence ferry doesn't take you their from Vivekananda Rock. However one can enjoy the grandeur from Vivekananda Rock to or from the shore.
  • One of the best towns/places to hangout with family and friends not only in the TN but all over the India. It is the last part of India.
