Ramanathaswamy Temple, Rameshwaram Reviews

  • A visit to this temple I always remember. One of the most holy temples for Hindus. It is an architectural marvel as well. It's corridor is so long that I felt tired walking. The devotion of worshippers here is amazing. It is situated on a sandy island. How come they transported such an amount granite stone to build such a gigantic temple ! They also have a sweet water well on the sandy sea bed.

  • रामेश्वरम हे भारताच्या तमिळनाडू राज्याच्या रामनाथपुरम जिल्ह्यामधील एक लहान शहर आहे. रामेश्वरम शहर तमिळनाडूच्या आग्नेय भागात मन्नारच्या आखातामध्ये स्थित असलेल्या रामेश्वरम द्वीपावर वसले आहे. रामेश्वरम श्रीलंकेच्या मन्नार द्वीपासून ५० किमी अंतरावर आहे. शिवलिंगावर केवळ गंगाजलाचाच अभिषेक केला जातो. रामेश्वरममध्ये १२ ज्योतिर्लिंगांपैकी एक असलेले रामनाथस्वामी मंदिर स्थित आहे. ह्यामुळे रामेश्वरम हिंदू धर्मामधील सर्वात पवित्र स्थानांपैकी एक मानले जाते. रामायणामध्ये भगवान श्रीरामांनी रामेश्वरममधूनच लंकेमध्ये आपले सैन्य नेण्यासाठी रामसेतूची रचना केली होती. सध्या ह्या सेतूचे केवळ अवशेष शिल्लक असून एकेकाळी हा सेतू भारतीय उपखंडाला श्रीलंका बेटासोबत जोडणारा अखंड दुवा होता हे सिद्ध झाले आहे. या ठिकाणी भगवान श्रीरामाने भगवान शंकराची उपासना केल्याचं म्हटलं जातं. रावणाविरुद्ध लढण्याचं पाप धुण्यासाठी श्रीरामाने भगवान शंकराची उपासना केली होती. रामेश्वरम हे चारधाम यात्रेपैकी ही एक तीर्थक्षेत्र आहे.

  • Good temple but Not maintained properly, worst temple management. No proper queue for Dharshan. Beach near temple is dirty.

  • The historic Rameshwaram temple dedicated to Lord Shiva in the form of Ramanathaswamy is one of the important pilgrimage sites to Hindus. It is one of the 12 jyotirlinga temples located in India. Pilgrims usually offer respects to their elders at this site. The temple is open from 4am to 1pm and 3pm to 8.30pm. Mobile phones and cameras are not allowed inside. You will be required to deposit them outside. There is no entrance ticket. It is open to the public. The west entrance is the main entrance and the beach is located at the east entrance wherein pilgrims take bath to do the rituals. There are also shops located inside the temple to buy idols and other souvenirs.

  • 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.
