Surrounded by the magnificent hills and lush green fields on one side and endless sea on the other, Kanyakumari is small yet extravagantly beautiful town. Also known as Cape Comorin, it is located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu at the southern most tip of peninsular India.

Tracking the history of civilizations dating back to hundred of years, it has been ruled by Cholas, Nayaks, Cheras, Pandyas and later on by the British. Popularly referred to as the 'Alexandra of the East', it was earlier the important trading center of south India. Surrounded by the natural beauty on all sides – sea, paddy fields and coconut trees, Kanyakumari is worth a visit.

As far as I could see there are huge number of coconut tress dancing gently in the sunny morning sun peppered with old houses, windmills, churches and hotels with the glittering greenish blue water making the perfect scenery. Nearby stands statue of Thiruvallure and the Vivekananda Rock Memorial on two islands in the ocean, making a picture complete.

It is built on the same place where where there is an vase that contained the ashes of Gandhiji before they were immersed into the water. The architecture of the memorial is designed on the pattern of central Hindu temples in a way that the first rays of the sun fall exactly on the place where ashes of Mamahtma Gandhi are kept.

Kanyakumari Beach : - Located to the south of Nagercoil, the beach of Kanyakumari is known for its multi colored sand. As the beach is too rock and rough sea, swimming is prohibited in the area.
