Goodmorning Sunrise

You can see the silhouette of Rock memorial against the Rising Sun.

This sunrise was one of the beautiful sunrise of my life.

Vivekananda Rock Memorial is a monument and popular tourist attraction in Kanyakumari, India. The memorial stands on one of two rocks located about 500 meters off mainland, India's southernmost tip.

It was built in honour of the visit of the great spiritual teacher Swami Vivekananda (1892 ) for deep meditation and enlightenment. He swam to this rock and meditated about the past, present and future of India. It is said that he attained enlightenment on the rock, and henceforth became a reformer and philosopher.

The merger of three seas - Bay of Bengal, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean can be seen from these rocks.
