"One of the Jyotirlingams out of 12 numbers"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Very Religious place. Visited the Temple twice, one in the morning and one in evening. No rush at all. Saw the kundas from where the people were Bathing. Intricate carvings on all the walls of the Temple. Darshan was good. Since people were Bathing and coming it's watery on the floor all time. Very historical too if one follows the Ramayana.

"It is a revered religious center in southern part of India. It is believed that people who visit Ka"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is an overwhelming feeling looking at the gigantic temple. Surely it ranks one of the marvels of civil engineering. It is amazing to see the beautifully aligned corridors, roofing system and the method of construction adopted during those days. Crowd management is very well done and the temple is kept clean. Even the Bath to be taken from 24 wells is organised with clear sign boards. One should visit this temple in life time. However outside the temple, the surrounding area to be kept more clean and arrangements for foot ware to be made.

"Wonderful temple"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 9, 2017
The Ramanathaswamy temple is known for being one of the twelve Jyotirlinga temple. One can reach this place from the main bus stand (at a distance of 3 either through a local bus or a rickshaw spending Rs. 100 or Rs. 5 each respectively. The hotel facing the sea, a stone throw away from the temple would be a good choice for boarding.

Starting with taking a holy dip in the sea water (Agni Theertham) and buying a ticket of Rs. 25 we headed into the temple premises. The ticket cost apart from entry ticket also covers a holy Bath at each of the 22 wells (Tirthas and each having significance) within the temple premises. As we walked the path to the main deity, we soaked ourselves again at each well, from head to bottom with the sacred water that was splashed over us, out of the buckets drawn out from the well by the designated temple staff. It was a delightful experience to be bathed and would remind many, of their childhood days when Mom honored such experience back then. We had to dry ourselves in the hot sun before heading to the main deity as one is not allowed to meet the Lord in wet clothes. After waiting for our turn crossing a long line of devotees, we finally placed ourselves amidst the Lord. We were fortunate to reach the place right at the time of Aarthi and the God's shrine which is well lit with lamps makes it a divine atmosphere. A great experience.

Rameshvaram is an small town in a state of tamilnadu along with a pamban Island. We reached to rameshvaram by train on pamban bridge across the sea was an awesome experience was extremely excellent ... It is the only way to reach there ... Rameshvaram temple is most devotional and famous temple one of the jostling of 12 jyotirlinga ... It is mostly visited by hindu dedicated to lord shiva. There was an entry tickets ... Temple is situated near by agnitirtham ghat ... Before get entered into temple it is necessary to take a deep into sea is must important. Along with 22 ancient water kunds to take Bath before darshan was an awesome experience ... It is said that every water kund have an holi water. Very nice temple also mentioned in ancient vedas ... Also said that lord tamatar and laxman placed a shiva linga here to get by blessed by shiva before the construction of rama setu ... Very beautiful temple must visit.

"An ancient temple and famous shrine but quite mismanaged in terms of crowd handling"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Jan 4, 2017
Especially on the days of new moons, there accumulates heavy crowd but the temple trust is mismanager to handle such crowding. The temple fans do not run and it becomes suffocating with such crowdings. Sometimes it creates stamped like situation that is quite unsafe.

"The Sacred Gateway"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Dec 3, 2016
The temple is dedicated to lord shiva and it is believed that Lord Ram has worship this Jyotirlinga before departing to Sri Lanka. Inside the temple there is famous 21 holy kund bathing which can be availed by paying Rs 25 only. 90% of devotees take this Bath to overcome on sins. There are many aartis performed here but as I heard the morning aarti is quite important if you believe in such rituals. Cameras are strictly prohibited inside.

"Vepa Samba Siva Rao."

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 17, 2016
One of the MUST in Hindu Pilgrimages.
Very Systematic Procedure if you engage a Guide. No fee for Simple Darshan, but Temple charges for Quick Pilgrimage Snanams & for Quick Darshan. The Construction &Architechture is UNIQUE. Pilgrims go to Varanasi after visiting Ramalingeswara Swamy. Various doctoring shops are around the Temple, & the food is fresh & good. Mobiles Not Allowed to be carried into Temple, & Lockers for mobiles are available just out side the Temple. Choultries & Hotels are located all round the Temple.
