Trip to Madurai & Rameshwaram

Posted by Bala on July 1, 2008

Last month June 13th, one of my college friend got married in Madurai. The same weekend me and my parents planned for a trip to Madurai and Rameshwaram. I started from Bangalore by train, my parents and one of our family friend’s family started from Dharmapuri and my brother started from Chennai and joined in Madurai. Visited Azhagar Kovil, Palamuthircholai, Thiruparankundram, Madurai meenakshi amman temple on Friday and started to Ramehswaram on Saturday morning. It was a nice long journey and this is my first time to Rameshwaram, so I was amazed to travel on the Pamban bridge and to see the waveless sea. The sea near the temple is not very clean because of the poojas they make for their ancestors and since there is no waves the sea will not the push the things out of water which normally all seas do.

Next day morning we went to the temple and had dharshinam of Sapidaga lingam (ச்படிக லிங்கம்). Sapidaga Lingam dharshinam is allowed every day morning between 5 AM and 6 AM. Inside Rameshwaram temple there 22 theerthams which are shallow waters of the sea extending upto some metres. Hindus believe that a bath in all of these theerthams will remove our sins. In legend, Lord SriRam took a bath in Agni theertham after killing Ravana and worshipped the deity here. Hence these theerthams are considered as holy for pilgrims.

In the afternoon we went to Dhanushkodi, the end of Indian border 🙂 the sea water was fantastic with huge waves, the beach is very clean unlike few other beaches in India.

Then returned back home carrying of lot of enjoyment in memories.

    I visited Rameshvaram also last February. I was there for almost a week. It is an extraordinary place. Madurai too, a few years ago. It is lovely to read your account of your visit.
