Ramanathaswamy Temple, Rameshwaram Reviews

  • ॐ नमः शिवाय रामेश्वरम हिंदुओं का एक पवित्र तीर्थ है। यह तमिल नाडु के रामनाथपुरम जिले में स्थित है। यह तीर्थ हिन्दुओं के चार धामों में से एक है। इसके अलावा यहां स्थापित शिवलिंग बारह द्वादश ज्योतिर्लिंगों में से एक माना जाता है।[क] भारत के उत्तर मे काशी की जो मान्यता है, वही दक्षिण में रामेश्वरम् की है। रामेश्वरम चेन्नई से लगभग सवा चार सौ मील दक्षिण-पूर्व में है। यह हिंद महासागर और बंगाल की खाड़ी से चारों ओर से घिरा हुआ एक सुंदर शंख आकार द्वीप है। बहुत पहले यह द्वीप भारत की मुख्य भूमि के साथ जुड़ा हुआ था, परन्तु बाद में सागर की लहरों ने इस मिलाने वाली कड़ी को काट डाला, जिससे वह चारों ओर पानी से घिरकर टापू बन गया। यहां भगवान राम ने लंका पर चढ़ाई करने से पूर्व एक पत्थरों के सेतु का निर्माण करवाया था, जिसपर चढ़कर वानर सेना लंका पहुंची व वहां विजय पाई। बाद में राम ने विभीषण के अनुरोध पर धनुषकोटि नामक स्थान पर यह सेतु तोड़ दिया था। आज भी इस ३० मील (४८ कि.मी) लंबे आदि-सेतु के अवशेष सागर में दिखाई देते हैं।[1] यहां के मंदिर के तीसरे प्राकार का गलियारा विश्व का सबसे लंबा गलियारा है

  • Holy place. Temple management need to maintain cleanliness in the beach and pedestrian ways to holy well. Government should take steps to maintain cleanliness in temple and surrounding sea shores.

  • Such a lovely and peaceful place. Visited recently and due to Sabrimala month there was a lot of crowd. Felt blessed after taking bath in holy wells. Hotels are very reasonable in this area.

  • An Ancient place with good tourism facilities. Shallow sea and religious environment. An improved cleanliness would have helped. Nice staying places are available. A boat ride in the bay of Bengal is good experience to see the island from sea.

  • Wow...Such a beautiful temple... One can see jaw dropping paintings on the walls... Sculptures are lovely crafted... more over there are 22 holy water wells... A place where one can find peace and get blessed...
