Rameswaram

Rameswaram is a small and simple fishing village, ideal for serenity seekers. The village though small is always lively and welcoming. Take a stroll and watch the simple folk perform their daily chores or simply gaze at the fishing boats that make their way back to the shore. Rameswaram will definitely take you back to your roots while you unknowingly fall in love with village ways. It even has its own folklore. It is here that Rama prayed to Lord Shiva after rescuing his beloved Sita and assassinating the demon King Ravana.

    Ramswaram is home to some of the most majestic temples with vivid Ramayana folklore attached to each. The Sri Ramnathaswamy temple is where Lord Rama decided to worship the demigod Shiva with a massive lingam. Unfortunately the flying monkey he sent couldn’t return with the largest lingam in the world. At this point Lord Rama’s devoted wife made a lingam her husband could pray to, using only sand. Legend has it that this lingam still adorns the centre of the temple. However the temple is more than just another mythical structure, its architecture is as captivating and metaphorical. The intricately constructed corridor is 1,220 metres long adorned with the most detailed pillars and ceilings. Once you do cross the corridor you enter the hall of a thousand pillars, each of which when struck produce their own sweet music. Finally, on the outside are 22 Theerthams to represent the 22 arrows that the majestic Lord Rama always carried. The Kothandarmaswamy temple on the other hand was born out of Lord Rama’s guilt once he assassinated the demon king Ravana. The Satchi temple stands to mark the auspicious piece of land where Sita’s whereabouts were reported by Hanuman. Besides these temples there are two more gorgeous shrines, the divine Badrakaliamman Temple dedicated to Goddess Durga and the beautifully built Theertham temple.
