Things to Do in Kanyakumari

  • Feast of Our Lady

    One of the most eagerly awaited festivals by the Christian community in Kanyakumari, this 10-day festival is celebrated in December every year. Prayers and masses are conducted after hosting the flag in the morning. This is followed by colourful processions that come out in cars on the streets with huge aplomb.

  • Chitharal Jain Monuments

    The historical ruins of Chitharal Jain Monuments stand as vestiges of Jain settlements in Chitharal – a small hamlet in Kanyakumari. Earlier, the place was known as Thirucharanathupalli, which served as the serene abode of several Digambar Jain monks. The reason behind the Jain influence in this part of the state was Pallava King Mahendravarman I, who was a follower of Jainism. The king was famed for leading many such constructions, particularly rock-cut sculptures in cave temples.

    The village is popular for a cave atop a hillock that features rock-cut images of attendant deities and Jain Tirthankaras. These carvings date back to the 9th century and are considered archaeologically significant. Amongst several exquisite rock-cut sculptures found in the cave, the prominent one is an image of Goddess Dharmadevi. The cave was converted into a goddess temple during the 13th century. At present, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has included it in the list of protected monuments.
