Then, I went to the top of Gandhi memorial and took a photo of Thiruvalluvar Statue.
From the other side I took a snap of View tower and Kamarajar Manimandapam.

After that I went inside the Gandhi memorial. There was a note written by Mahatma Gandhi inscribed in the wall along with his painting.
I am writing this at the Cape, in front of the sea, where three waters meet and furnish a sight unequalled in the world. For this is no port of call for vessels. Like the goddess, the waters around are virgin.
