Travel Blogs from Kanyakumari
Første weekend i Madurai var allerede planlagt da jeg landede. Ikke af mig, men af Projects Abroad. Hver anden weekend arrangerer de ture til områderne omkring Madurai.
Efter nogle travle dage ventede altså en ligeså travl weekend.
Vi kørte med en offentlig bus til Kanyakumari, på vejen stod der flere frivillige på fra de projekter der …
I have now reached my most southern destination in India - any further south and I wouldn't be in India. Cape Comorin is the tip of the country where 3 oceans meet. Its a seaside town that has a strong smell of fish and salty water and is a mecca for people making a pilgrimage to the temple on the very tip. There is also a temple on an offshore …
Today has been an absolutely wonderful day, the sort of day that my die ********g term traveler friends must be jealous of. That's because Fr Andrew, Fr Dennis and myself visited a wonderful place not open to tourists.
It was an early start to the day plus now I'm staying at Adaikalapurum for one week so I've had to pack my bag. Fr Andrew's brother, Thomas, is a forestry manager of an area in the Western Ghats, the mountains I was so impressed ...
... the musical pillars in the Vijaya Vittala temple complex in Hampi cannot to touched (due to their dilapidated condition), you can play all you want on these musical pillars until your knuckles hurt!
We left the temple, vowing to come back and if possible get permission to go up the tower and see the murals and sculptures there. Wish the Archaeological Dept. would add this temple to their sites and help in preserving these ancient ...
... das Vivekananda Denmkal, eine 1970 errichtete Gedenkstätte für den Hindu-Philosophen Swami Vivekananda, der hier 1892 drei Tage meditierend verbrachte. Auf dem anderen Felsen wurde im Jahr 2000 die 40 Meter hohe Tiruvalluvar Statue als Denkmal für den tamilischen Dichter Tiruvalluvar errichtet.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Maadhini Kanyakumari
Projects Abroad had booked the rooms for us. We payed 650 Rps pr. room pr. night. It was double rooms, so the amount was split, but you can find cheaper stays in Kanyakumari.
The restaurant served us good food, though a little slow at times.
There is a bar which closes at 10 p.m.
The rooms were fine for a short stay. A big bed, a sofa with a table, a televison, a seiling fan and own bath and western style toilet. Unfortunatly our room had an attraction to ants, so the floors were alive when we got in. But it was no problem to get one of the men of the service department to remove them with a broomstick and that actually pretty much took care of the problem.
