Description: Rameswaram is one of the holiest tourist destinations in India and famous all over the world for the Ramanathaswamy Temple.

Rameswaram is a famous religious destination in the state of Tamil Nadu in India. The prominent town lies in the Ramanathapuram district of the state. The distance from Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu is 572 km.

The sacred town of Rameswaram is situated on Pamban Island. The island does not form a portion of the Indian mainland and it is disconnected by the Pamban canal. The distance of the holy town from the Mannar Island in Sri Lanka is approximately 50 km. Another name of Rameswaram Island is Pamban Island and the Pamban Bridge links the island to the Indian Territory. Rameswaram is also the last station on the railway track from Madurai and Chennai. Along with Kashi, Rameswaram is regarded as one of the famous sacred sites in India to the followers of Hindu religion. It constitutes the Char Dham or four most religious places of worship in India. As a result of this, it has turned into a vibrant religious hub.

Rameswaram is an island at the extreme end of the Indian isthmus and is nestled in the Gulf of Mannar. As stated by mythological stories, this is the area where a bridge was constructed by Lord Rama, which is called Adam's Bridge (Ram Setu) over the sea to Sri Lanka to salvage his wife Sita from Ravana who kidnapped her. Both the followers of Shiva and Vishnu come to this religious hub. Because of the religious importance of the place, it is named as the Varanasi of the South. The town covers a total area of 61.8 Km or 34 sq miles.

The town is the birthplace of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, former Indian President. He grew up in a tiny fishing village known as Dhanushkodi lying on this island.

The seashores of Rameswaram are known for their picturesque features. The stunning sea is tranquil and almost free of any waves. The sea waves go up to a maximum altitude of 3 cm and the sight appears similar to an extensive river. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Rama of the famous Hindu epic Ramayana offered his prayers to Lord Varuna, the sea god, to build the route to Lanka. Lord Varuna blessed him, offering an approval, stating that he will diminish the intensity of the sea waves in order to help him construct a stone bridge.

The town features an arid weather with a considerable extent of humidity. The mean yearly precipitation of the town is 94 cm. The major volume of precipitation results from the Northeast torrential rain which takes place from the month of October to January. The temperature of the area measures between 30°C and 35°C. The maximum temperature registered was 37°C at Pamban station and the minimum temperature ever recorded was 17°C.
