The hoard of crowd has taken its original charm, too crowded and people are more in 'selfies'! The security guards over react and hence the place is noisy. The foot wear is not allowed but the stones are so warm that one has to run!...More

A most interesting wait in the queue for the Ferry to go over to the Rock. Met lovely Indian people who had travelled far and wide for the pilgrimage. Ferry was completely safe, with life-jackets, well organised and the Rock itself, a very spiritual experience....More

It is an amazing place. Just seeing the 2 seas meeting and the ocean extending for evermore, along with the wonderfully maintained memorial was an exhilarating experience for us.

Was a good place to explore and learn about some culture. Was crowded on the ferry as they cram as many people possible. Once we arrived it was a very interesting place.
