Introduction

One of the most important features of Rameshwaram, a major tourist attraction of Tamil Nadu, is its popularity as an important pilgrimage center. Equally sacred to Vaishnavities and Shaivities, the two main sects of Hinduism, Rameswaram is regarded as one of the holiest cities of India. The Ramanathaswamy Temple, a Hindu pilgrimage site with ornate corridors, huge sculpted pillars and sacred water tanks is the major draw for the tourists. Devotees also cherish bathing in the waters of Agni Theertham. Admiring the island views from Gandamadana Parvatham is a hill is a wonderful delight. A chakra (wheel) here is said to bear an imprint of Lord Rama’s feet. Thus, planning a tour to Rameshwaram beguiles with a number of surprises.
