Kanyakumari

..... Continued from previous post and Previous to Previous Post



Our journey continoued. We checked out early in the morning on 11th Feb 07, Sunday. This time to reach Kanyakumari had understood that train is the best mode of transport. We found from resort folks that there was a train from Varkala to Kanyakumari at around 7:30 AM. We called for an Auto and reached Varkala from Resort, which is around 4KM. This time he took Rs. 40, which was ok, unlike Rs. 100 while coming to Edava. :0



As we did not have for breakfast, I bought some juice, biscuits and other eatables from Train Station itself and took an unreserved ticket which I remember to be Rs. 40 per head. Train got delayed for 30 min. At around 8 AM we got in and reached Kanyakumari at around 12 noon.


Took an auto to a Hotel very near to beach and temple. Had lunch at Sharavana Veg, which was pretty good. Hotel was pretty decent and got it for Rs. 800/- per night. We had lot of time. So planned to finish places inside Kanyakumari and wanted to reserve Monday for around it.


We started to Vivekananda Rock and Tiruvalluvar statue through ferry. This is the snap from our room. We could see Statue and Viv. rock from our room.















Vivekanand rock is one of most beautiful man made structure and very clean and systematic. Thress oceans meet there with roaring sound and flashing waves. Very nice place to visit. Ferry will take you to the Tiruvalluvar statue. Its very big, to reach statue's feet itself, we need to climb 4-5 stories.

































Evening, we visited temple and went to the beach for watching the sunset. We felt very bad, as it was too cloudy and could not watch the sunset.











Next day morning Sunrise was one of the beautiful scene I had ever seen
