Description: One of the most sacred bathing places in India is Cape Comorin, the southern tip of India, where there is a shrine to Kanya-Kumari the Virgin goddess and where the Arabian Sea, the Bay of Bengal, and the Indian Ocean come together. It is the hope of devout Hindus that they may be able to make a pilgrimage to Cape Comorin and to the Himalayas, the two most sacred spots in India. This view shows the very tip of India, looking out to sea.
