I got up at 5 am and had a shower. After that I went to the beach side to see sunrise near the Thiruvalluvar Statue. The sunrise was not a good one as the sun was covered by the clouds. If you want to see the sunrise photos I took some days back, click here.
After that I visited Sri Adi Shankaracharya temple:
Then, I saw an altar dedicated to Swami Vivekananda:
Just near the altar there was a gate of two dolphins.
Then, I went to the famous Kanyakumari Bagavathiamman Temple. On the way I found a nice view:
Kanyakumari derives its name from from the Goddess Kanyakumari Amman, the presiding deity of the area. The most prominent temple, the Kumari Amman, is dedicated to the goddess Parvathi as a virgin. The temple situated at the edge of the ocean for the Goddess Kanyakumari has the legendary account that once Banusura, the demon king got supremacy over Devas and meted out cruel punishment to them. The Devas performed a Yagna pleading to annihilate the evils. Goddess Parasakthi came to Kumari in the form of a virgin girl and began her penance. Meanwhile Lord Shiva fell in love with her and arrangements for the marriage were made in the midnight a particular day. Now the Devine sage Narada realised that their marriage would destroy the chances of annihilating Banusura because he could be killed only by a virgin. When Lord Shiva was on his way to Kanyakumari from Suchindrum at Valukkamparai 5 kms south of Suchindram, Sage Narada assumed the form of a cock and crowed falsely heralding the break of dawn. Thinking that the auspicious time for the marriage was past, Lord Shiva returned disappointed. The Goddess too decided to remain virgin after that. Then, when Banusura attempted to win the Goddess by force, she killed him with her Chakragudha, and relieved the sufferings of Devas. Then she resumed her penance and remained virgin.
