Attractions In & Around
Ramanathaswamy Temple

The deity here is Lord Shiva in the name Ramanathaswamy. Legends say that Lord SriRam before annihilating demon Ravana, worshipped the God here and that Lingam is known as "Ramalinga". After this, SriRam and his monkey troops built a bridge out of stones, crossed the sea and reached Sri Lanka.

Agni Theertham

Theethams are shallow waters of the sea extending upto some metres. There are 22 such theerthams in Rameshwaram. Hindus believe that a bath in all of these theerthams will remove our sins. In legend, Lord SriRam took a bath in Agni theertham after killing Ravana and worshipped the deity here. Hence these theerthams are considered as holy for pilgrims.

Pamban Bridge

Pamban bridge is 3 kms long which connects the island of Rameshwaram & Dhanuskodi to the mainland. This is the longest bridge in India and illustrates the marvel of the engineers. The bridge allowed meter gauge trains to run over it since 1911. The Department of Railways has planned to run broad guage trains over it and the works are going on. One can have a beautiful view of the sea while crossing through this bridge.

Dhanuskodi

This is the easternmost tip of Rameshwaram. Most of this spot is occupied by the sea during tropical cyclones. On the way, the Kodandarama temple exists. The nearby places Tiruppullaani & Devipatnam also have legends associated with Ramayana.

Gandamadana Parvatham

This is a hill (parvatham) situated on the island which has a shrine containing the foot imprints of Lord SriRam.
