Life could not have been any better; this was the sentence running all over my mind. At Thiruvalluvar statue Kanyakumari, I got the eternal peace. That gigantic stone sculptor was almost forty metres high, which was a marvellous piece of rich kanyakumari architecture. This statue was built in the memory of noble saint Thiruvalluvar, who was a Tamil philosopher.
Among the entire classic place in Kanyakumari, the Thiruvalluvar statue is surely one of them. The artistic walls create a magnetic source for attracting tourists from all over the world. This mammoth structure signifies the rules to be followed by humankind in his life. The statue stands upon a 38-foot pedestal representing the 38 chapters of virtue in the Thirukkural. The statue standing on the pedestal depicts wealth and pleasure, portraying that wealth and pleasure can be achieved on a solid base. This deep meaningful place enlightened me. Noticeable point of the statue is that it is slightly bend from the waist, gesturing a dance pose of the ancient Indian deity Nataraja.
The fingers on right hand of the statue were pointing upwards in the sky, signifying its three cantos Aram, Inbam and Parul. There was every way to connect the statue to the tourists. From the ferry system to bus system, Kanyakumari tourism industry gives special attention to the medium of transportation for such statues. With no dressing restrictions unlike other holy places it made me feel completely, without any obligations.
The Thiruvalluvar statue Kanyakumari was worth visiting. It was still being updated by the Kanyakumari tourism industry so that they can maintain the dignity of the place. This mesmerizing place has so much to offer, but due to tragic incident in recent years like tsunami, this place suffered quite a loss. This holy place is the meeting point of two seas at the sideways (Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea) and one ocean (Indian Ocean) at the bottom. After the entire sightseeing it was time for me to go back. After the end of one holy spot it was time for being a bit of historical at Padmanabhapuram Palace, which is located in the same city.
