Once at Kanyakumari, Modi will go to the Rock Memorial, where he will meditate in the Dhyan Mandapam, the same spot where Swami Vivekanand once sat, from the evening of May 30 until the evening of June 1. June 1 is the deadline for the seven-phase Lok Sabha elections, and June 4 is when the results will be declared. Situated near the monolithic monument of Tamil saint Tiruvalluvar in mid-ocean off the coast of Kanyakumari lies the magnificent Vivekananda Rock Memorial.

Kanyakumari is renowned for its unique geographical and cultural significance. It is the meeting point of three major water bodies: the Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Bay of Bengal. The town is not only a prominent tourist destination but also holds spiritual importance, being home to the Kanyakumari Temple dedicated to Goddess Kanyakumari. The place has also been a site of significant historical events and figures, including Swami Vivekananda, who meditated on the Vivekananda Rock Memorial. Swami Vivekananda was influenced by the rock in Kanyakumari, which was eventually turned into a memorial. He spent three days in meditation there in December 1892 after making a thorough tour of the nation.

The spirituality of Kanyakumari is deeply rooted in its ancient temples, sacred sites, and cultural heritage, making it a profound centre of spiritual energy and enlightenment. The town hosts several ashrams and spiritual centres where visitors can engage in these practices. The serene environment and the spiritual energy of the place make it an ideal location for introspection and spiritual growth.
