‘Rameswaram the Island Town’
A beautiful town in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, Rameswaram is located on the Pamban Islands which is separated from the mainland by the Pamban channel. Together with Varanasi, the town of Rameswaram is considered as one of the popular holiest places in India for the pilgrimage of Hindu Char Dham.

History of Rameswaram
The history of Rameswaram is dominated by its importance of being an island that is a transit point to reach Sri Lanka and the presence of the Ramanathaswamy Temple. The island has been ruled by the Chola King, Rajendra Chola I, between the years 1012 and 1040 and Hinduism is the chief religion here even today. The temples here are rich in wealth and artifacts as the kings were staunch followers and made generous contributions to the temples. Hindu Mythology narrates that Rameswaram is the place from which Lord Rama built a bridge across the sea to rescue Sita from Ravana.  In Sanskrit, Rameswara means ‘Lord of Rama’. Ram is also said to have prayed to Lord Shiva, to absolve any sins that he may have committed during his war against Ravana. The Ramanathaswamy Temple is dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva and is closely associated with Rama. Not only is this town considered a hot tourist stop but is also a holy pilgrimage site for Shaivites and Vaishnavites equally.
