Top 7 Must-See Spots in Rameshwaram

Top 7 Must-See Spots in Rameshwaram, Rameshwaram, India (B)

Rameshwaram has been, for ages, one of the most frequented tourist places in India, especially from the pilgrimage point of view. This is the same place that the Indians, across the world, have heard all through in their lives, when they spoke and listened to the epic Ramayana. The town has been at the centre of a lot of action when Lord Rama and his team brought back Seeta from the mighty King Ravana, based in Sri Lanka. Having had a journey myself on India’s Longest Running Train & then exploring Kanyakumari, the last leg of my journey was Rameshwaram. A small town it is but Rameshwaram played a big role and has multiple tourist and pilgrimage points that are not-to-be-missed. And interestingly, it is not just the temples but also clean beaches, less crowd overall at public places and sacred ponds etc that will make you add this place to your bucketlist. Here I give you all the points I found awesome, well worth spending time exploring.

The most favoured and most frequented Shiva temple in Rameshwaram. The legend has it, that this is the temple where it is believed Lord Rama prayed to Shiva to seek forgiveness for committing a sin of killing a Brahmin (King Ravana). The temple, one of the 12 Jyotirlinga temples, has 22 holy water bodies out of 64 in & around Rameshwaram town as a whole. Huge temple and fantastic architecture. ......
