Location to see sunrise in Kanyakumari
Although the place from where you get to see the best sunrise would be place popularly referred to as Vivekanand Rock Memorial and Thiruvalluvar Statue by a lot of tourists. Since the sunrise & the landmark Vivekanand Rock Memorial both are on your EAST when you click the picture, the logic is so derived. So, when you click, you see the morning sun with the said statue of Swami Vivekanand.
Even at 5.30 am, there will a lot of people coming around and it would be little bit difficult for you to find the best place where there is not much hustling & pushing around crowd going on. There is a seating arrangement pretty similar to what we find in the cricket stadiums – difference is just that here you have only 2-3 concrete rows.
