Sightseeing

The Ramanathaswami Temple is about a hundred meters from the shore. It marks the place where Rama is said to have earned Shiva’s forgiveness for killing Ravana. The temple is huge with a 54meter high gopuram and a corridor that is 1220meters long, lined with 1200 huge granite pillars.

The Agni Teertham is when devotees purify themselves in the seawater around. The temple complex has 22 wells, each of which is supposed to have different tasting water. Gandamadham Parvatham is the highest point in the island. The hall has a wheel (chakra) which bears a footprint believed to be Rama’s. 8km from Rameswaram is the southern tip of the island called Dhanushkodi after Rama’s bow. The boulders around are believed to be from the bridge that Rama’s monkey army built to get across to the errant Ravana’s Lanka. Devastated by a cyclone in 1964, all that remains here is an ancient temple and its idols of figures from the epic.

Rameswaram is not only a pilgrimage. The Kurusadai Islands west of the Pamban Bridge are of great interest to marine biologists as is the entire area around here. The gulf has been declared a biosphere reserve. The coral reefs are beautiful and home to lots of sea-creatures. Boat rides to the islands can be arranged from Mandapam.

Shopping

The seaside is peppered with little stalls selling wares of seashell art; corals, conches and palm leaf drawings are available around the beach.

Eating Joints

There are number of restaurants that serve wide range of tasty food, according to different tastes of the visitors. Most of the well known restaurants are located along the West Car Street. These places serve a variety of delicacies from South Indian cuisines. All the tourists who come to Rameswaram demand for the different dishes in the thali, thus, making it quite popular.
