Situated on Pamban Island, Rameswaram rests on a serene strip of land where the spectacular natural beauty and religious sites provide a heady atmosphere of spirituality and tranquillity. The town is connected with the mainland of India by the magnificent Pamban Bridge. The place is the closest point to Sri Lanka from India and is steeped in mythologies associated with the “Ramayana.” While the Ramanathaswamy Temple is one of the holiest places in India, travellers may not know beforehand that the town is also a leisure destination with plenty of gorgeous beaches where they can go scuba diving and swimming.
