Create an itinerary including Vivekananda Rock Memorial
Visit Vivekananda Rock Memorial, sitting iconically upon one of two rocks sticking out from the middle of the sea. Swami Vivekananda is said to have attained enlightenment on these rocks, with a towering statue overlooking the endless ocean built in his honor. Two meditation halls offer a surreal experience for the spiritual, with the isolated rocks offering the perfect atmosphere to clear one’s mind. The ground itself can get quite hot, which can be uncomfortable as you must take your shoes off.

  • Must visit place. We could go only to Vivekananda Memorial Rock. Tiruvalluvar statue is under maintenance so no one is allowed now (May 22, 2022). Entry ticket to and fro is 50 rupees. Children are charged for tickets. After one reaches Vivekananda Rock, entry is 20 per head. Well maintained place. There will be a long queue to board the boat and return also. But it won't be taxing. One can enjoy the sea. It is very breezy.Carry a water bottle. And umbrella if one needs. The counter opens in the morning by 7.45am and closes by 4.00pm. No tickets are issued after 4.00pm for safety reasons.
  • Victorious Vivekananda. Attracting so many people each day from all over the world. Located beautifully away from the sea shore on a rock island. Great work by the authorities. Total peace with heavy wind blowing all time. Boat service take people to the rock memorial every 15 minutes depends on the weather. Amazing experience for tourists and kids love the return journey more. Lots of space available to relax for a while when visiting the memorial.
