Ramanathaswamy Temple



One of the must visit destination of a Rameshwaram Tour, the Ramanathaswamy Temple is a famous pilgrimage center of the city, state and the country as well. The Ramanathaswamy Temple is associated with the mythological epic - Ramayana.

It is believed that Lord Rama constructed the temple to offer his prayers to Lord Shiva. After his victorious return from Lanka, Rama prayed to Shiva to relieve himself from the sin of killing Ravana. Hanuman was directed to bring the Shiva Lingam from Kailasha Mountain but when he could not return in time, Sita made another Lingam. This led to the inception of this famous temple.

The Ramanathaswamy Temple complex has two sanctums. One of them houses the Lingam brought by Hanuman from Kailasha. The temple boasts of some wonderful images depicting mythological characters.
