Kanyakumari, the land of Tri-Seas is the southernmost tip of the Indian peninsula. It is known as Cape Comorin during the British rule. It is a place where the Arabian Sea, the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean confluence. The 133 feet Thiruvalluvar Statue has been erected near the Vivekananda Rock. Both are surrounded by the sea and one can have a panoramic view of these unique historical monuments from the shore. Kanyakumari is popular for its spectacular and unique sunrise and sunset on full moon evening. One can see the moon rise and the sunset at the same time. The new building of the college is at the Palkulam which is a small hamlet, located 10 Kms away from Kanyakumari. Another attraction near Palkulam is Vattakottai Fort which is a protected site under the Indian Archaeological Department. The fort comments a picturesque view of both the sea on the one side and the hills (Western Ghats) on the other.

Manonmaniam Sundaranar University Constituent College has made its humble genesis at Government Primary School Campus, Kanyakumari in 2012. It was commissioned to function as a Constituent College of Manonmaniam Sundaranar University. The purpose of starting this College in the southernmost tip of India is to help the rural students to have higher education. The new building for the college was inaugurated at Palkulam by the Honourable Chief Minister of Tamilnadu through video conferencing on 05-09-2017.
