Rameshwaram Beach

Rameshwaram BeachA blend of pilgrimage and a pleasure trip can be a comely vacationing option. And Rameshwaram, a quiet seaside hamlet in Tamil Nadu, with its deluge of Shaivaite and Vaishnavaite temples is just about that. Besides the scenic elegance of the calm sea, swaying palm groves and the flocks of sun-basking tourists, what makes it all the more savory is the location - Rameswaram is an island town separated from the mainland by the Pamban Channel.

Beach Attractions
Ramanathaswamy Temple - As the lore goes, Rameshwaram was the place from where Lord Rama built a bridge across the Palk Strait to reach Lanka in his quest to rescue Sita from Ravana. Once the mission was accomplished, Rama constructed a Shiva Linga there as a sign of thanksgiving to the lord. This Jyotirlinga along with the Sri Visalakshi Ambigai Sannithi, established by Vibheeshana, makes it a sacred site for both Shaivites and Vaishnavites. The grandeur is further enhanced by the 1,219 m pillared corridor consisting of 3.6 m high granite pillars, richly carved and well proportioned. It is believed that Moksha remains unattained if you don't visit this place once.

Sea-life - The waters here store rare sea species and coral reefs. Share the waters with the rollicking dolphins. Be it day or night, the waters are inviting and you can swim 24X7 if you desire.
