The Vivekananda memorial Kanyakumari and its Beauty.

The founding of Vivekananda Kendra—the Living Memorial was declared in 1964. After the foundation of about nine years, Vivekananda Kendra was officially established on 7 January 1972 (the 108th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda). On that date, as the sun climbed, a saffron flag with Om wrote on it was unfolded on the Vivekananda Rock Memorial to rejoice the founding of the Vivekananda Kendra: a spiritually oriented service mission of non-monastic order.

The belief of penance was to be continued by young men and women arriving as Karyakartas of Vivekananda Kendra to publish the advice of Swami Vivekananda:

Hundreds and thousands of men and women, excited with the eagerness of holiness, strengthened with eternal faith in God, and nerved to lion’s heart by their compassion for the poor and the collapsed and the oppressed, will go over the expansion of the land, preaching the faith of salvation, the faith of help, the faith of social raising up, the faith of equality.

The twin purposes of Vivekananda Kendra are man-making and nation-building. Sri Eknath Ranade concluded that Vivekananda Kendra was to be a cadre-based organization. Young men and women whose essences long to serve the nation would be given the opportunity and the right stage to serve Good in man.

When Swami Vivekananda Rock Memorial was planned, it was modeled by E. Thanumalayan, a student of the S. T. Hindu College, Nagercoil. He created it with paraffin wax. The Memorial is the coalition of West Bengal and Tamil Nadu architecture and the design of Ramakrishna Math, Belur, West Bengal. He was sincerely praised by the then Madras Chief Minister Bhaktavatsalam for its artistic quality.

This Mandapam, which is constructed in honor of Vivekananda consists of the following divisions:

Dhyana Mandapam is the meditation Arena.

With six adjacent rooms to its main area.
Sabha Mandapam is the Assembly area including Pralima Mandapam (statue section) two rooms.
A passageway and an open prakaram(outer courtyard) around the Sabha Mandapam.
Mukha Mandapam
Namashtubhyam to the jagadamba’s son
This is the spot where he got his purpose of life.

Mata PARVATI calls him to arrive here and to understand the truth of India i.e what was the richness of India, why it stepped down, what are the causes and how it can be glorified.

Gandhi Mandapam In Kanyakumari – A monument of wonder.

Gandhi-a short look on His Life:

Honored over the world for his peaceful philosophy of quiet resistance, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was known to his many admirers as Mahatma, or “the great-souled one.” He began his activism as an Indian foreigner in South Africa in the first 1900s, and in the times following World War One became the front figure in India’s strife to gain freedom from Great Britain.

Known for his modest lifestyle–he often clothed only in a loincloth and shawl, Gandhi was jailed several times during his pursuit of non-cooperation and undertook a number of hunger strikes to object the subjugation of India’s lower classes, among other inequalities. After Partition in 1947, he proceeded to work toward peace and harmony between Hindus and Muslims.

In January 1948 Gandhi was shot dead in Delhi by a Hindu fundamentalist.

Monument of wonders:

Constructed in 1956, the Gandhi Mandapam in Kanyakumari, India rests on the site where the worlds exceptional peacemonger Mahatma Gandhi’s ashes were kept for public viewing before they were dispersed to the sea and highlights unique engineered details to esteem the beloved leader’s life.
After Indian nationalist Mahatma Gandhi was tragically killed in 1948 his was cremated and sent to all parts of the country to honor various mourning ceremonies. One such site was the town of Kanyakumari where a portion of his ashes was kept before ritually dissolved in the sea. A mandapam (A significant building Dedicated to a specific person or event ) was built on the site where his ashes had rested.
The mandapam was built with very specific dimensions just to honor the man behind our Independence. including The center pinnacle of the top. It proudly stands exactly 79 feet in height which is Gandhi’s age at his death. The most exceptional feature, however, is a hole in the roof of the building which is located in such a way that on October 2nd, Gandhi’s birthday, the sunlight comes through it and falls on the precise spot where his ashes remained.

Unique in its own Catagory

Memorials and tribute statues across India have honored Gandhi’s life and dedication for the Indian people, but this may be the only unique one that has harnessed the sun to honor him.
