Experience Rameshwaram

The town of Rameshwaram has held great significance in India’s history, especially in regard to the country’s trade engagements with other countries. The island town used to be a stopping point for travellers who set out to Ceylon, now Sri Lanka. Even the Khilji family in Delhi has been associated with Rameshwaram’s history. Rameshwaram sightseeing tours are so much more than cherishing the beautiful historical landmarks in the town; they will also help you discover the great historical importance that Rameshwaram has held for all these years.

The 16th century was the time when the Vijayanagar kings ruled in Rameshwaram. They did so till 1795, which is when the town was taken over by the British East India Company. The influx of such diverse cultures makes Rameshwaram quite an eclectic town, which is something that you can observe in the local population’s daily traditions and also in the town’s distinctive architecture when you visit with your Rameshwaram tour package on your vacation.

 

Things to Do in Rameshwaram

  • Visit Ramanathaswamy Temple: The Ramanathaswamy Temple is one of the most famous temples and sightseeing spots in Rameshwaram. What makes it special is the fact that in a town where most temples are dedicated to Lord Ram, this temple is dedicated to the Hindu Lord Shiva. The reason behind this is that it is believed that Ram worshipped Lord Shiva, who is also known as the destroyer, to clear himself of the sin of killing Ravana.

The temple houses, not one but two lingams (symbols of Lord Shiva), one that is said to have been brought by Lord Hanuman from the Himalayas, and the other which is believed to have been created by Sita out of the sand after the delay in the arrival of the first lingam. The temple has excellent architecture and is incredibly beautiful. Your cost-effectively priced online Rameshwaram travel package from Veena World will acquaint you with this beautiful temple and much more.

  • Wash Away Your Sins at Agnitheertham: Plan your Rameshwaram tour itinerary to include this activity as well. Take a dip in the 23 theerthams (holy water bodies) that are all situated in and around Ramanathaswamy Temple, as this practice is considered to be an integral part of washing away one’s sins. Every theertham is located inside the premises of the Ramanathaswamy Temple except for the Agnitheertham. Situated at the sea, only a few hundred meters from the temple's east gate, many people bathe in this theertham while worshipping the Hindu deity.
  • Stand at the Edge of India: Beyond the Dhanushkodi, Arichal Munai is technically the land border between the two countries of India and Sri Lanka. However, as the distance between these two countries is not more than 18 nautical miles, the international laws for a feasible boundary line have not been fulfilled. Which is why the governments of both countries agreed upon an imaginary one. The chain of limestone shoals, popularly famed as Adam's Bridge, extends entirely till the Sri Lankan coast. Standing at the edge of India is quite a surreal experience that you can enjoy on your Rameshwaram tour.
  • Take a Train Ride Over the Pamban Bridge: Connected by the two noteworthy bridges, Pamban Rail Bridge and Annai Indira Gandhi Road Bridge, Pamban Island is a scenic place, to say the least. What’s more is that you can choose to enjoy a train ride on the Pamban Rail Bridge on your Rameshwaram holiday package, which is an exceptionally exciting experience!

Fun Fact: The Pamban Rail Bridge is India’s oldest sea bridge and was successfully built in 1914. The Annai Indira Gandhi Road Bridge, which became functional in 1988 is India’s second longest sea bridge.

  • Learn How to Kitesurf: It might come as a surprise that a town that is nationally acclaimed for its religious tourism is also one of India’s best kitesurfing destinations. You can book your Rameshwaram trip package for the kitesurfing season which comes shortly after the wind flow during the monsoons. You can enjoy flying kites or witness the kitesurfing; the event is just as grandiose as it is fun. However, if this isn’t one of your interests, you can indulge in water sports like snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding, or kayaking.
