are Ramanathaswamy Temple, Dhanushkodi, Agnitheertham Gandamadana Parvatham etc. Stay overnight
at your hotel in Rameshwaram.
Rameshwaramis of severe mythological importance, it may be scenically well endowed, but its true
character is revealed in its collection of Lord Rama temples, each backed with a story from the epic
Ramayana. Lord Rama camped here, worshipped here, solidified his plans of rescuing his wife Sita from
demon king Ravana, sighed on having Sugreev’s support whose monkey army built him a bridge of
stepping stones (Ram Setu) up to the Lankan coast, crossed-over to the other side, slain Ravana, returned
with his wife, worshipped Lord Shiva to absolve from any sin he may have committed during this war, took a
holy dip in the sea, and installed a sand Shivalingam which later became the greatly revered Ramanatha
Swamy temple. Rameshwaram could be pilgrim-heavy, but there is still so much solitude, so much greenery,
and so many heart-wrenching stories of bravery from the Ramayana, and real life too. The drive on the
Pamban Bridge over a flat blue sea will be a perfect prelude to your journey into the land of Lord Rama.
