Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu

The sun peaks out from between Vivekananda Rock Memorial and the large Thiruvalluvar Statue as it rises over the southernmost tip of India where the Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean, and Arabian Sea meet. Kanyakumari is a popular pilgrimage location: before sunrise, as early as 4:30am, streams of people head down to the water’s edge and Kumari Amman Temple. It is also one of the only places in the world where you can see the sunset and moonrise simultaneously from the same vantage point.
