Rameshwaram Travel Guide

The temple town of Rameswaram in state of Tamil Nadu, is an island in the Gulf of Mannar off the tip of the peninsula. It’s a place of legend: the place where Lord Rama and his monkey army built the bridge to Ravana’s Lanka to rescue Sita, as per the epic Ramayana. This is also the place where Rama, an incarnation of Vishnu asked forgiveness from Shiva for killing his follower Ravana. And so, Rameswaram is sacred for both the Shaivite and Vaishnavite sects of Hinduism.

The famous Ramanathaswami Temple is known for its 22 wells. The strange thing about these wells is that the water of each well is different from the other, apart from the taste, the wells are also known for their medicinal properties.
