The Vivekananda Rock is a sacred monument and a popular tourist attraction place located in Vavathurai, in Kanyakumari (India). The Vivekanada memorial stands on one of two rocks located about 500 meters off mainland of Vavathurai. It was built in 1970 by the Vivekananda Rock Committee in honour of the visit of the great spiritual teacher Swami Vivekananda ji to Shripada Parai during the December month in 1892 for deep meditation.
