Dhanushkodi Temple and Beach, Rameshwaram Overview

Dhanushkodi was until a few years ago a wonderful temple on the southern tip of India. However, due to a natural calamity, the cyclone, it got completely washed away.

It holds the advantage of being on an island and is exquisitely covered by waters on all the four sides of it. It is sandwiched between the Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean. When viewed from a birds eye,The seas are in the shape of bow and arrow. The arrow head is considered to be a sacred place for worship by the Hindus and people from far and wide come there to offer sacred prayers to the deity. Lord Rama has his pious foot marks in this temple and the whole story of Ramayana revolves around this temple island. It is a wonderful pilgrim place for the followers of Lord Rama. The place is an approximate of 18 kms from Rameshwaram and one can easily travel by road.

Dhanushkodi Temple and Beach Reviews

6 months ago by Arka Das

Take a bus from Temple and reach Dhanushkodi. From there take a matador type car which costs around 150-160 INR head. Though a new road is under construction and hopefully will be operational by next year. Please visit the place early in the day to avoid the heat over the sands. The water and other stuffs near beach are a bit expensive.
