Start your day by visiting the temples in the area. So, you can go to the Kanyakumari Bhagavathi Amman Temple, which is one of the 52 Shakti Peethas. The construction of the temple is inspired by the Pandya dynasty and later renovated by the Cholas. You can find the inscription on the walls of these temples, which provide some insights into the medieval ages. So, make sure to view the architecture style and its detailing. This temple is open for visitors from early morning 4.00 am to 12.00 pm and from 4.30 pm to 8.00 pm.
From there, you can visit some of the monuments like Vivekananda Rock Memorial, Thiruvalluvar Statue, Kanyakumari Government Museum, and Gandhi Memorial. These are well-known monuments and each has separate historical stories within themselves. So, try to communicate with your guide to know more about these masterpieces. These memorials are open for the visitors from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm in the. Hence, try to visit these places by the end of the evening. If you visit these places during August or November, you may get hotels in Kanyakumari with tariff because of the Navarathri festival.
So, after the visit to memorials, you can sit and relax at any viewpoint to watch the glorious sunset. The best place to view both the sunrise and sunset is Vivekananda Rock Memorial. As there is no specified time to know the sunset, just make sure to spend your evening sitting on the rocks by watching the waves splashing on the rocks. You can even watch the sunrise from the same viewpoint.
The next day you can start by watching the sunrise and visiting the Vattakottai Fort. From this fort, you can view various windmills and nuclear plants, and a part of this fort is extended into the sea.
