Category: Places

 

Photo and caption by Vadym Kulykov

Fluttering paper stars and multi-colored tags hint at Christmas eve. It is the city of Kanyakumari in the South of India, Cape Comorin known also under the name. Together the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal here meet, and each Hindu person dreams at least time in life to appear in this point where its land terminates. Our Lady of Ransom Church is in the middle of stocky fishing quarter. Opposite to a construction is the huge cross made of a mast from broken ship. Local fishermen are not hindus, but Catholics. In the sea they leave by heavy tin boats or on catamarans from logs.

Location: Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu state, India
