Sir, no good habits.

The Hotel is good and it gives good view of the monuments in Kanyakumari

Thanks for the appreciation.

Yes that is the place where i took that picture and hope you scratched your head to trace which connection went to which shop.

Did you try tasting the Jhikarthanda.

The King did travel till the West Koil Street where the M.R.International Hotel is and took a right turn instead of left towards the temple.

The streets are very narrow.

No. After standing in those loooong queue to enter the temple [could not have dharsan since they closed sharp 12:30 ] and coming out I got head ache. So, badly missed it. next time for sure.

We wasted 2 1/2 hours standing in the queue only to see those closed doors.

You should have catch hold of those temple security guards and they would have taken you near to the Garbhagudi directly by paying just Rs.100 per person, we paid Rs.600/- for 6 people and stood in front of the god for 10mins.

Frankly speaking i did not taste the Jhikarthanda, hope i will taste it someday.

I've heard about people enjoying a holiday, but Gowdre you've enjoyed only driving and holiday just for a reason.

Pavan it was totally enjoying drive and trip.

The max time spent was in driving and 2nd max time spent was at Kanyakumari.

1890kms travelled in 25-30hrs, we did it just because we were in The King, or else we could not have done it.

The whole trip was very comfortable and never felt tired or any sort of thing.

THE KING CONQUERED THE SOUTH INDIA SUCCESSFULLY
