Vivekananda Rock Memorial - Kanyakumari - Tamil Nadu

Vivekananda rock memorial stands atop a rock in Vavathurai, Kanyakumari. As the name suggests, this stunning monument was built in reverence to Swami Vivekananda. There is meditation hall and a book store with profound collection of Vivekananda books.

In the year 1892, Swami Vivekananda, who had already wandered for three years in search of wisdom, landed in Kanyakumari. He found a piece of rock in the middle of the sea and swam in the shark infested sea and reached this piece of rock. He meditated day and night for three days and attained enlightenment. Thus, India got a new spiritual leader, mentor and teacher.


A memorial was built on the rock where Swami Vivekananda did penance in the year 1970. This is situated in Vavathurai in Kanyakumari. The memorial which was erected in the memory of Swami Vivekananda consists of two main Mandapams- Vivekananda Mandapam and Shripada Mandapam.
