Description

In this book discover the great ‘dhaam’ of the South – Rameshwaram, Here, in the time of legends, Lord Rama arrived while searching for Sita, his beloved queen who had been abducted by Ravana, the demon king of Lanka.

For Hindus, the ‘Chaar Dhaam’ are among the most sacred places of pilgrimage. The ‘Chaar Dhaam’, the four holy abodes of Lord Vishnu, are—Badrinath, Puri, Dwarka and Rameshwaram.

In this book discover the great ‘dhaam’ of the South – Rameshwaram, Here, in the time of legends, Lord Rama arrived while searching for Sita, his beloved queen who had been abducted by Ravana, the demon king of Lanka. Rama worshipped Shiva and Durga here, praying for victory and built the Ramasetu, the bridge to Lanka. Sacred Rameshwaram was thus sanctified by the presence of Rama, the seventh avatar of Vishnu. It is a 'tirtha' where Rama built a shrine to Shiva, the ancient Ramanathaswamy temple. Rameshwaram resonates with the legends of Rama and the presence of a holy jyotirlingam makes it even more sacred.
