A town that is full of life one day may face the wrath of God and within a short span of time turn into rubble. Dhanushkodi is one such example it is now a town of just a few fishermen and remnants of its history. Though Dhanushkodi has been officially named a ghost town or city of the dead, it doesnt give goosebumps. Instead, the charm of this city of the dead will indeed make ones heart long to come here again and again

Know More about this tour

A short ride from your hotel in Rameswaram for half an hour and this world of lost history welcomes its guests with open arms. With crossing the check post, the smooth road ends and thereby starts a 20-minute sandy thoroughfare to the Dhanushkodi village. Soon the remnants of dilapidated and deserted houses, school and other buildings are seen scattered here and there.

The ruins of the town dont need any light and sound show or any special effects to tell its history. The broken structures itself take its visitors to the past when this town was full of motion and lively with its own folk; schools, temples, markets, railway officers quarters and houses.

On December 22, 1964, the sun rose as any other day in Dhanushkodi but the sunset brought doom with it. The high tidal wave took with it the whole townfolk and transformed a once busy town into a ghost town. However, devastation here has produced a unique beauty. Now, tourists throng in great numbers to this land where there is no easy transportation, no electricity and no hotels. After explored you will be dropped your hotel.
