You walk over the pier and get into the sea where you have lovely spring water which is a major highlight of this beach.Villoondi tirtham features subtle tides. The mythical story of the spring water shooting out of that particular spot in the sea states that after lord Ram and his army set from Sri Lanka after rescuing Sita (his wife) from Ravana, they got to Rameshwaram where his army was dying of thirst. That’s when Lord Ram shot an arrow in the sea from where the fresh spring water oozed out. The army quenched their thirst with this water.

  • Well maintained and serene area. When Seetha Devi wanted fresh water to drink at this spot at Rameswaram , Lord Rama dipped the arrow in salt water of the sea and immediately fresh drinkable water came from that spot. Hence Villoondi Theertham ( Tamil word - meaning fresh water by dip of arrow). There is a photographer here who takes instant photograph for memory

  • In reference to history, this is the place where goddess sita when got thirsty, while returning back to ayodhya from lanka; lord ram put an arrow in the sea n drinkable fresh water appeared (written at the place), beautiful beach, very calm n clean, a small shop offering water bottles. Main road connectivity is about 500 meters.

  • Very calm beach! Good place to get relaxed! And a must visit in rameshwaram

  • great and peaceful place dont forget to visit this place and also taste the water

  • An outstanding experience, feels like any abroad sea shore. A must visit place in Rameshwaram.
