How apt that the final post from India ends at the southernmost tip of the country at Kanyakumari, where three great seas meet - the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea, and the Indian Ocean. From certain locations, you can see sunrise and sunset over the water from the same place! First three photos are of sunset taken at the southernmost tip (although I didn't venture out onto the rocky boulders with the vicious monsoon waves!) and also from the sunset tower. The last three photos taken from the balcony of the Sea View hotel. This was my third visit (while on the theme of 3s!) to the holy pilgrimage site, and Kanyakumari has not yet failed to produce a magnificent sunrise and sunset!
"According to Hindu legend, Kanya Devi, an avatar of Parvati, was to marry Siva, but as he failed to show up on his wedding day, the rice and other grains meant for the wedding feast remained uncooked and remain unused thereafter. As the legend goes, the uncooked grains turned into stones as time went by. Some believe that the small stones on the shore today, which look like rice, are indeed grains from the wedding that was never solemnised. Kanya Devi is now considered a virgin goddess who blesses pilgrims and tourists who flock the town" (Wikipedia).
