    Favorite thing: Kanya Kumari used to be so beautiful years back. A beautiful sea shore with mufti coloured sand. confluence of three oceans, a sea with different co lours blue, deep blue and aquamarine. a peaceful temple which faces the ocean a rough boat ride to Vivekananda rock and serene atmosphere there .
    Now the face changes by the day. the beach is invaded by new new buildings Kamaraj foundation, pillars, mandapams, badly maintained children s park a view tower which is a blemish, The rocks invaded by huge statues, The footpath invaded by vendors dirt and rubbish every where. Even Gandhi Smrithi is not spared.

    Fondest memory: Inspite of this whatever sand that remains makes us believe that these are indeed the jewels and food stuffs from Devi kanyakumari's thwarted wedding.
    nights when the crowd have left are beautiful and serene.
    And if you are lucky and sky cloudless sun rise can be very spiritually uplifting.The sunrises with all splendor and pageantry lasting minutes that there is no better sight.

    A disappointing visit

    Favorite thing: You might think that Kanniyakumari would be a beautiful place considering how important it is as a site for pilgrims and tourists alike, but it's really quite an unattractive place. Like the other parts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala that I visited, it is run down, cluttered, dirty, and littered with trash. Even the beach area, where you can stand in the water of three different seas at the same time, was filthy. It's worth going to Kanniyakumari to see the memorials and such, but I don't see any point in staying there overnight because there's really not much to do or see there. I expected it to be one of the highlights of our trip but came away fairly disappointed by it.

    Main Bazaar

    by Willettsworld Written Sep 24, 2009

    Favorite thing: The main Bazaar links the main town with the temple and is lined with rather tacky souvenir stalls plus a few average looking places to eat and some internet places.
