Kanyakumari || Kanyakumari
Kanyakumari, also known as Cape Comorin is the Land's End of the Indian subcontinent, where the Bay of Bengal meets the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. Nature is so spectacular at Kanniyakumari that several other Indian beaches pale by comparison. Cape Comorin is at its best during Chitra Pournami, (the full moon day in April) when the sun and moon are face to face on the same horizon but other full moon days are also special and you can see the sun set and the moon rise almost simultaneously. Watching the sun rise here is an age-old ritual that attracts pilgrims each morning, who gather to plunge in turbulent swell of tri-oceanic waters.
The Kumari Amman Temple here is dedicated to Parvathi as Devi Kanya( the Virgin Goddess) who did penance to obtain the hand of Lord Shiva.
