Kanyakumari Amman Temple is not only famous for its architectural beauty but also for its? picturesque location. It is located on the shore where the three oceans meet: the Indian Ocean, the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. It is dedicated to goddess Bhagavathy Amman, an incarnation of goddess Parvati. The foundation of the temple was laid by the Pandyas. Later new additions were made by the Nayaks. The sanctum sanctorum houses a very captivating idol of the goddess. The nose-ring of the goddess shines brilliantly as if enveloped with some divine power. Tourists from across the globe come to Kanyakumari to see this beautiful temple. Goddess Bhagavathy is also known as Devi Kanya Kumari and is a symbol of a Hindu Nun. Her only desire is to keep chanting God's name. She is a model to the Hindu Women.
To the southeast of the Kanyakumari Amman Temple lies two rocks rising out of the ocean. One of the rocks has footprints of the virgin goddess. Other one is the rock where Swami Vivekananda sat in meditation and attained enlightenment. Here the Vivekananda Rock Memorial was built in 1970.? Come to the Kanyakumari Amman Temple to take her blessings.
