This is a five faced hanumanji temple, near the main rameshwaram temple. Alongwith the temple, you have floating stones which were used in the ramsetu. Small stones are available in the temple which you can carry back to your home.

The statue of Panchamukha Hanuman stands in tall. The temple is not crowded and we can get easy darshan. Floating stones are restored in this temple. Hindi is widely spoken in Rameshwaram by priests and local guides.
