After a grueling bus trip from Madurai we landed in the most southern seaside town of Kanyakumari.

The goddess temple of Kanyakumari is a wish-fulfilling shakti-peeth (I plan to visit all 52 of them!), and is known for bestowing blessings and wishes upon the faithful.

We also took a ferry ride to the famous rock monument of Vivekananda.

On the island, we sat for about an hour in a really cool meditation hall dedicated to the soothing sound of ‘omkara’. It was the perfect end to a busy day.

Kanyakumari is a very popular Christmas holiday destination for the Indian masses. Our next stop is Ponducherry for Xmas day.
