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.

  • Unique experience of travelling in ferry and then reaching the small Rock and then spending time in the rock. There is a big meditation hall with Vivekananda statue. The toilets are well maintained...

  • 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.
  • Nice peaceful and truly spiritual place. A rocky piece of land surrounded by the ocean is amazing to see. Worth visiting here. But carry your drinking water and some fruits or something to eat if you want to spent sometime cause nothing you can get there. Books stalls are there about Vivekananda and other Holy books written on Hinduism. Love to come again...
