Padmanabhapuram Palace in on Trivandrum - Kanyakumari route
Suchindram is on Kanyakumari - Nagercoil route

You would have to start early if you want to cover both the palace and the temple and reach Kanyakumari before sunset.

From Thamapnoor bus stand catch a bus going to Nagercoil / Thuckalai. Get down at Thuckalai and catch an auto.
The palace is open for visits after 9:30

Go back to Thuckalai and catch a bus for Nagercoil / Kanyakumari and get down at Suchindram. The temple closes at 13:00 and reopens at 16:00.

Catch a bus to Kanyakumari

The last boat to go to Vivekananda Rock Memorial is at 16:00.

Apart from the 2 places that you mentioned there a few beaches, Gandhi Mandapam, Temple, Lighthouse in Kanyakumari

Frequent buses ply from Kanyakumari to Trivandrum.

Well, I am new to the forum and this is my first post here, will take care hereafter.
Also Thanks a lot for the information.
So, does this mean I can return to TVM on the same day after sunset as there will be buses plying frequently ??
And what time can I get the 1st Bus from TVM in the morning?? How frequent are buses from TVM?

Thanks

Check once you get down at Kanyakumari. Buses are normally frequent during the day time and not that frequent during late evening.
