  • Reach Rameshwaram in the morning

  • Dhanushkodi Beach & the Last Road Of India :
  • Another major reason for it being such a popular destination in India is because of the presence of Rama Setu (the mythical bridge that Lord Hanuman and his monkeys built for Lord Rama and his troupe to reach Lanka). One can see the remains of the mythical bridge, which is now called Adam's bridge
  • Dhanushkodi Old City or the Ghost Town :
  • This once small yet prosperous town had all the amenities of a bustling community; a local church, schools and a railway station that shuttled both residents and tourists to and from the island.
    That all changed on 22 December 1964 after a cyclone swept through the town, ravaging the buildings and decimating the population.An estimated 1,800 people died, nearly all structures were destroyed. In the aftermath, the government declared the town unfit to live in and it has lain abandoned ever since.
  • A visit to Dhanushkodi would definitely give it a lot of thought. The confluence of the Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean, The divinity and the town in ruins covered by sand is sure to remain in your mind for a long time.
  • Visit the view point where Bay of Bengal & Indian Ocean meets 
  • Visit the church and also the railway station which is the exact opposite to the church
  • You can try some fresh seafood from the stalls nearby and have lunch
  • After lunch head towards Vibhishana Temple and take a look at the floating stone - Sri Panchmukhi Hanuman Mandir & Floating Stones
  • House of Kalam (APJ Abdul Kalam House / Museum) Presenting an interesting sightseeing choice, Former President A. P. J. Abdul Kalam House is which has now been converted into a museum is a place worth visiting. Kalam House is undeniably one of the most popular places to see in Rameshwaram

The Rameswaram Ramanathaswamy Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga shrines, revered by millions of devotees.

The temple’s intricate carvings and magnificent Dravidian architecture make it a sight to behold.

My first trip as a solo traveller with Hippie was incredibly fun! not just because I got to travel around places like Shivanasamudra waterfalls and Talakadu temples but the people I met there were truly beautiful. We had so many great conversations and connected really well. The trip was organised very smoothly and I didn't want it to end at all. The coordinators had made their research for the place and had given complete information about the trip and how the journey would be a day before which made me less anxious travelling solo. Would love to travel more and more with a group like them.
