Ride on Pamban Bridge was an enjoyable moment. We departed from Chennai at 9 pm and reached Rameswaram at 8 am. The climate was hot but we enjoyed the new welcoming atmosphere. Buses were not allowed inside the city. So we had to take an auto to the hotel. For security reasons no vehicles were permitted to go near the temple and so we had to walk 10 metres to MCM Towers which was very close to the temple. We returned to Chennai by Sethu Express.

I just traveled in SRS travels, the quality of bus and timings are very superb and the facility of bus also good. The only main draw back was there is no charger support in the bus. In 12hours of journey we have to make our mobile safety by with out making charge get reduce.

We choose train to travel to Rameshwaram. We booked 3 AC ticket just one week before 2 families as group travelled and travelling is good. Train reached right time at Devi Pattinam. There we worshipped Rama's Nava pasana Navagraga Temple at sea shore area. Then we travelled to Rameswaram by Taxi. Taxi driver Mr. Kannan very good and he helped lot to visit the temple very quick and comfortably, then we went to Dhanush Kodi and very surprised to see temples and old houses, rain stations and church etc.

I have booked this train ten days before and the train started from Chennai Egmore at 5 pm it is on time and reached Rameswarm at 5 am. The train boogie is clean but the toilets are not good even no light in the toilets. Some chit chat done with fellow passengers at Villupuram. I have taken water bottle and some biscuits. Some of the passengers told their experience about Rameswaram.
