Bharat Mata Mandir

Vivekananda Kendra, Vivekanandapuram - Kanyakumari.

Vivekananda Kendra proposes to construct a Bharat Mata Mandir – a temple dedicated to Bharat Mata – at Vivekanandapuram,

Kanyakumari. The proposal has come up in the context of Swamiji's 150th year celebration across the country and abroad. Swami Vivekananda's association with Kanyakumari is well known. His visit to Kanyakumari towards the conclusion of his country-wide Parivrajaka life marks a turning point, both in the life of Swamiji as well as in the history of modern India. In Swamiji`s own words: “At Cape Comorin, sitting in Mother Kumari's temple, sitting on the last bit of Indian rock, I hit upon a plan.”

“Reaching the shrine he fell prostrate in ecstasy before her image. Worship finished, he crossed to a rock which was separate from the mainland. About him the ocean tossed and stormed, but in his mind there was even a greater tempest.
