Thiruvalluvar Statue, Kanyakumari

4.1
Thiruvalluvar Statue depicts the Tamil poet and philosopher Tiruvalluvar, the famous author of Thirukkural, a classic Tamil sangam literary work featuring over 1,000 couplets. The 40.6 m (133 ft) tall stone statue sits upon a pedestal, with the total weight of the structure reaching 7,000 tons. Take notice of the slight bend in the figure's waist, reminiscent of the dancing poses of Indian deities. This attraction sits alone on a small island rock just off the Kanyakumari coastline, accessible by ferry. Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Kanyakumari using our trip planner.

  • Legend of Tamil. Great poet. People are crazy who forget this huge statue and visits abroad to see big statues must learn that India also has wonder sculpture. Worth visiting. Ferry services running fro kanyakumari to Vivekananda Rock Memorial and Thiruvalluvar Statue rock. Nearly 3 to 4 hours total required. However in holidays long queue will make you tired for buying tickets. Have 2 to 3 hours time for queue. Ultimately great place.
  • Very nice place. Be there at 5 to 5 30 am to see sunrise. Summer is the best time see sunrise. But little bit hot.
  • It is situated next to Vivekanand memorial, so the ferry ride that takes you to the memorial takes you this place after you are done with memorial. The place is magnificent and once in life time experience to watch. To know the ferry charges and other things read my review on Vivekanand rock memorial as the same ferry connects you here. You will really like the place as it is in midst of Indian Ocean.
  • Wow, it's really great experience to me and my family. More 100 feet high statue makes really happy and Cool mind. Unfortunately now entry to that palce closed but with the help of political help or higher official recommendation you can visit here
  • This is cool place.but can not see the full status from the place. The best place to the full statue is Boating dock in the evening and in the morning time the vivekand rock.
