Rameshwaram Yatra is one of the pilgrimage Yatras of India associated with the story of Rama who rested and prayed after his triumph over the demon king Ravan. Rameshwaram is an island situated in Ramanathapuram district and is less than 40 kilometers from the Jaffna Peninsula, Sri Lanka in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Rameshwaram Yatra is significant for Hindus because in Rameshwaram Lord Rama worshipped Lord Shiva to cleanse away the sin of killing Ravana. Because of all these reasons Rameshwaram Yatra is considered as the “Benaras of the south” where both the Vaishnavites (worshippers of Lord Vishnu) and Shaivites (worshippers of Lord Shiva) visit this pilgrimage centre. The Ramanatha Swamy Temple is the most attracted tourist hub of Rameshwaram Yatra. Some other destinations to visit during Rameshwaram Yatra are Rameshwaram Yatra to Agnitheertham, Rameshwaram Yatra to Gandamadana Parvatham, Rameshwaram Yatra to Dhanushkodi, Rameshwaram Yatra to Erwadi.
