RameswaramRameswaram: Varanasi of South India

Nestled in the Pamban Island, Rameswaram Tourism is part of the Char Dham pilgrimage. According to the sacred Hindu mythology, Lord Rama had built a bridge, over the sea, to cross over Lanka. The presence of the Ramanathaswamy Temple in Rameswaram, is closely related with Lord Rama and is dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva. The Pandya dynasty had played an important role in enlarging this temple during the 12th century. Thus, for both Vaishnavites and the Shaivities, the sacred destination of Rameswaram has incredible importance, adding to the prominence of the Rameswaram Travel Guide. The seashore of Agnitheertham is considered very sacred and hence, a dip in it is believed to have magical and healing properties. Pilgrims also perform rituals in the sacred water of Agnitheertham.

The hillock of Gandamadana Parvatham is the highest point of Rameswaram, endowing a beautiful and majestic view. One can also discern the imprint of Lord Rama’s feet here.  Another popular temple is Satchi Hanuman Temple, where Lord Hanuman revealed the good news of finally finding Goddess Sita to Lord Rama. There is another Five-faced Hanuman Temple in Rameswaram, dedicated to the worship of Lord Hanuman. Thus, every year, Hindu pilgrims from all parts of India do visit Rameswaram to seek salvation. Thus to understand the sanctity of Indian culture and religious traditions, it is quite essential to explore the different facets of Rameswaram Travel, with faith and devotion.
