This train departs from Madurai around 12 pm and takes 4 or 4. 30 hours to reach Rameshwaram. One of the easiest way to Rameshwaram in minimum cost. The ticket was around 30 Rs and journey was pleasant. There was no crowed in train. Everyone was proper sitting and views are fantastic. When you go over the Pamban bridge, views will mesmerize you.

At 12:30 Pm the train leaves Madurai Junction and reach Rameshwaram by 4:00 Pm. As, entire train is passenger and no compartment is under reservation, one need to reach the Station a little early to grab the seat. It goes via scenic Pamban Bridge. A grt scenes on the either side of tracks with group of Peacock in the adjacent fields. A journey to remember.

The road condition was good and consistent. No tolls on the way. We stopped twice for coconut water and tea. We crossed small villages as we went, so you cannot increase your speed much. The road is also a bit narrow at some places, though should not be a problem, since the traffic is less.

I travelled to Rameswaram from Madurai by train and it was a nice experience and I went with my family. On the way we reached Rameswaram and first we went on Pamban Bridge and it was a nice experience. Travelling on water over 2.5 km cool breeze, nice sightseeing, boating, fishing etc. Must travel place.

We planned the vacation from 31st, May 2012 to 19th June 2012 to visit Madurai and Rameswaram. We started the journey by train from Agra Thirukkural Exp in the morning and reached Madurai the next day morning. In Madurai we visited Meenkashi Temple, Thirumalainaick Palace and later travelled to Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal, Gandhi Museum. Scenes from the train were good and the journey to Madurai is really good but beware of pick-pocketers.

After Madurai we hired a taxi and started our journey to Rameswaram. We caught NH-49 from Madurai and reached Rameswaram within 3.30 hrs. We just stopped before Pamban Bridge to see bluish great ocean from there (seems very good if you are from inland areas, I am from U.P.).

In Rameswaram we visited-Ramanathaswamy Temple(must visit), its nearby sea shore (very beautiful), Dhanushkodi, Tample Tanks, Abdul Kalam sir's birth house etc. Really a very beautiful place to visit.
