Jada Tirtham is situated around 3.5 km from the main island, on the Dhanushkodi road. After killing Ravana, Lord Rama visited this place and installed Sri Rama lingam in the temple. Before installing the lingam, Lord Rama washed his Jada (hair) with water in this temple to purify himself from the sins.

Jada Theertham temple is a small temple, located within the Kaveri Tirtham. The Kaveri Theertham is the only place in India where Lord Kapardishvara is worshipped. It is also believed that Jatayu, the king of birds, who fought with Ravana, fell down in this theertham after he was killed by the latter.

Jada Tirtham is constructed near a big Peepal tree, which is believed to be the place where the deities used to rest. The entire temple is known for its lattice and art works, which enhance its beauty and charm. The pond is surrounded by sand dunes and its water is sweet like coconut water.

This temple can be reached through different transportation modes from the airport in Madurai, which is at a distance of around 165 km from the town. Pre-paid taxi service is available from the airport to reach Jada Tirtham. Public transport buses and trains from the major cities of Tamil Nadu are also available to reach this temple.
