Kanyakumari is situated at the "Land's End" of India, at the confluence of the Indian Ocean, the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. It is located 89 kms far from Travandrum, which is the nearest airport. It is essentially a pilgrim town of great significance for Hindus, dedicated to the goddess Devi Kanya (an incarnation of Parvati) who single-handedly conquered the demons and set the world free. The places to see are Kumari Amman temple, Gandhi Memorial and the Vivekananda Memorial. Close to Kanyakumari is the Suchindram temple whose pillars produce musical sound when beaten.
