Ramanathaswamy Temple, Rameshwaram Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is an ancient temple. One of the Most famous temple around the world. Architecture is mind blowing. But there is no proper maintenance inside the temple. I have been there more than four times. I could see diaper and wet clothes uncleaned dust bins inside the temple. Even devotees should have some common sense that not to throw such type of things inside the temple. Temple management must take proper action against all this nonsense and should make the temple clean always.

  • Peaceful and serene. The beauty and aesthetics of this ancient Hindu temple is extraordinary. One of the twelve jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva is a must visit. An architectural marvel.

  • This is one of the holiest temples in India. It has the longest corridor with carved pillars and painted roofs which is quite beautiful. One can take a bath in the 22 holy wells or teerthams here, that costs just Rs 25. No cameras or bags allowed in, must be deposited outside.
