Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu

Been there recently?

One of the most scenic and beautiful places in the country, this religious and holy town is located on Pamban Island off the coast of Ramanathapuram district in Tamil Nadu. It is famous for the Ramanathaswamy Temple, and the island is also referred to as Rameshwaram Island. It is connected to the mainland by a multipurpose bridge named Pamban Bridge, and it is separated from Sri Lanka by a narrow section of the sea named Pamban Channel. This is the island from which Bhagawan Ram crossed the Pamban channel through the Rama Setu, the bridge built by Vanara Sena, and walked into Sri Lanka. The drive of 20 kilometres through the narrow and long stretch of land via the abandoned village of Dhanushkodi towards the endpoint is a delightful experience with vast stretches of deserted beaches on either side.

Nearby Places to See


Ramanathaswamy Temple
Established in the 11th or 12th century, it is one of India’s 12 Jyotirlingas. The current temple dates back to the 17th century and has undergone numerous renovations. Both the interior and exterior of this enormous temple are characterised by wide corridors lined on either side by ornate pillars. More than 120 feet in height, the temple’s tower is an impressive sight.
Pamban Bridge
This railbridge, which spans a distance of 2.06 kilometres and connects Pamban island to the mainland, was the first sea bridge to be constructed in India in 1914. There is a hinged section in the middle that can be raised to make way for ships to pass underneath. Pamban’s beach provides a stunning panorama of the nearby bridge.
This is an abandoned town on Pamban Island. It is situated close to the island’s tip and resembles a deserted town with abandoned temples, structures, and homes. The town was destroyed by the cyclone in 1964. A wonderful place to visit is the nearby marine national park, which spans 21 islands. The beaches, however, are unquestionably the location’s main draws. Long strolls can be enjoyed on the beach’s pure white sand.
Ram Setu
Nala, the chief engineer of Sugriva, built the bridge, which is also known as Adam’s Bridge. This bridge was built to aid Bhagwan Ram in crossing the sea and entering Sri Lanka. The island’s very tip is a popular vacation spot. With nothing but water on three sides, this is the northernmost point of Sri Lanka that can be seen on clear days.
