Kanyakumari is one of the significant place in India.Although there is not much tourist places to see.
But its southern tip of the Indian subcontinent.Where the three ocean met.
And famous seashore Shakti (Mother Goddess) temple.

In the pic.Thiruvallauvar standing in the middle of the ocean, where the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal meet.
Thiruvallauvar was great Tamil Poet.


This is view from Vivekananda Rock Memorial.You can see lighhouse and temple from here.
Kanyakumair doesn't have long or big beaches.
Sunrise and sunset are must or worth to watch.Taking bath here is considered as holy thing.

Jasmine flowers

The lane comes from Boat jetty,right side it goes to Kumariyamman Temple.Its near temple,he is selling flower ,its common site in SouthIndia near temples.people selling flowers,garland like Jasmine marigold,for womens and templs.

**JASMINE is famous for fragrance,and mainly used for all flower decoration in India.
Be it wedding or temple function .
Indain women wear the Jasmin in there hair.
Mostely South India you can see,any temple weddings you cant miss
