We will see the outside (Hindu's only allowed inside) of Padmanabhaswamy Temple and visit the adjacent Kuthiramalika palace. Then we will drive onto Karikkakom Devi Temple a Hindu temple dedicated to the fierce Goddess Chamundi a form of Kali. This is a beautiful and powerful temple.


Trip 2. Full day trip to the southern most tip of India to Kanyakumari.

On our last day we are offering a full day trip to the southern most tip of India to Kanyakumari, formerly known as Cape Comorin. Once here we will take a round trip short ferry to visit Vivekananda Rock Memorial and Thiruvalluvar Statue located on the confluence of the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea, and the Indian Ocean.

After lunch we will visit Kanyakumari Temple. Devi Kanya Kumari is goddess Parvati in the form of an adolescent girl child. Devi is also known as Shree Baala Bhadra or Shree Baala. She is popularly known as "sakthi" (Durga or Parvati) "Devi".

The goddess is believed to be the one who removes the rigidity of our mind; devotees usually feel the tears in their eyes or even inside their mind when they pray to the goddess in devotion and contemplation. Kanyakumari Temple is one of the 51 Shakti Peetam. It is believed that the spine area of Sati's corpse fell here creating the presence of kundalini sakthi in the region.

We will end our day watching the sun set for our last night, as the sun dips into the sea we can offer our heart felt wishes and gratitude for this amazing place.
