4.5/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web
Visit Vivekananda Rock Memorial, sitting iconically upon one of two rocks sticking out from the middle of the sea. Swami Vivekananda is said to have attained enlightenment on these rocks, with a towering statue overlooking the endless ocean built in his honor. Two meditation halls offer a surreal experience for the spiritual, with the isolated rocks offering the perfect atmosphere to clear one’s mind. The ground itself can get quite hot, which can be uncomfortable as you must take your shoes off.

  • Very peaceful place. Excellent view of three oceans i.e. Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal. There is a Hall inside for meditation on sound of OM . very pleasant
  • The boat journey to the rock itself is exciting and the rock even more. Wha y a wonderful place to meditate remembering that Swami Vivekananda also meditated here. It can get very busy and crowded as it's such a famous tourist attraction.
  • Veri nice and peaceful place. Vivekananda rock looks tremendous and it's just awesome. I visited this palce in 2001 that time and today is very different. But if anybody travels to kanyakumari then it must visit this place. The place of great swami Vivekananda. His speech and quotes are very inspirational. Specially the chicago speech.
  • I was there in 2004.. It was so much fun. You go there by a ferry from the dock. It was awesome!! winds are really strong. It was so much fun!! Just go there!! You'll enjoy it!!
