The entire stretch of road in that area was being widened or under construction...
NH 7 in the Madurai-Kanyakumari stretch is taken up for widening to 4 lane under NHDP

And monkey1, thanks for the pics. :)

BTW 'Kanyakumari' is not used by locals alone, it is the real name of the place, and is known all over India by that name only, as well as officially too. Cape comorin is the old english name, which I feel was seldom used.

view of town from Rock Memorial island....
This is the 'Vivekananda Memorial Rock', where Swamy Vivekananda meditated.

And the rock next to it is 'Thiruvalluvar Rock' which has the giant statue of 'Thiruvalluvar'. This statue was unvieled in 2000.
