Ranked 3 of 4 sightseeing in Dhanushkodi

Adam's Bridge, also known as Rama Bridge or Rama Setu, is a prime attraction of Dhanushkodi. It is a chain of limestone shoals which stretches from the Pamban Island to the Rameshwaram Island. The bridge is 30 km long and is believed to be a passage between India and Sri Lanka.

It is believed that the bridge was passable until 15th century when it was destroyed by a storm. The bridge is mentioned in the ancient Indian Sanskrit epic of Valmiki, the Ramayana. As per this scripture, Rama Setu was laid by the army of Lord Rama to reach Lanka in order to rescue his consort, Sita.

No signs left, people have made it a business

Danushkodi is around 22 kilometers from the main temple and vehicles are allowed till 14 kms after that you need a permission or take a bus which will charge 150 per person.The bus takes you from the beach area as they don't have permission of the road, the drivers are very rude and they don't move till they get exact 16 passengers. After reaching dhanushkodi there's a beach which is calm and a temple where you can see a floating stone. You can't see rama setu as there are no traces left. There are food stalls where you can buy food and stalls where you can buy small things like shells, keychains etc.Overall if you want to experience where Rama started the journey to lanka you can visit there but there are no traces and only a business is left there where you can just spend time with your family and friends.
