With great religious value in the hearts of devotees, Rameshwaram is renowned as one of the pilgrim centers of India. Located in the district of Ramanathapuram in Tamil Nadu, the place is visited by a number of pilgrims throughout the year and is among the “Char Dham” pilgrimages in the country. Prominently known as the religious city, Rameshwaram’s architectural brilliance will captivate your attention.

The peace and tranquility of these temples will be a blissful experience for your soul.

One of the twelve Jyotirlinga Temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple of Ramanathaswamy is an architectural excellence. According to mythological beliefs, the actual temple was built by Lord Rama himself, and therefore, has gained an esteemed position in Indian mythological reference. Another temple, called the Dhanushkodi Temple, was until a few years ago fully fledged. However, due to a natural calamity, the temple was completely washed away.

Another popular touristic spot is the Jada Tirtham which is known among the Hindu devotees for its sacred pond. Another interesting fact about the Jada Tirtham is that, it is believed to be the only place in India where Lord Kapardisvara is worshipped. Lakshmana Tirtham is another divine space close to Ramanathswamy Temple. The temple of Laxmana contains several instances of Ramayana engraved on its walls. Another quaint religious destination of Rameshwaram is Villondi Tirtham where Lord Rama dipped his bow into the seawater to quench his consort Sita’s thirst. There is a temple of Ekantha Ramar which is constructed on the same place where Lord Rama rested before launching attack on Lanka.
