believes that if he takes a holy bath in the sea at the Cape and makes his offerings to
the manes of his father and mother, they would attain salvation. A visitor to Cape Comorin
rarely misses this holy bath.
At the confluence of the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea
and the Indian Ocean a fairly big hill shoots up facing the temple. Swami Vivekananda used
to plunge in meditation seated on that hill facing the Goddess. He prayed there for the
salvation of mankind. Hence the Hill is called the Vivekananda Hill.
