The reference works I've looked at are very fuzzy about getting from Madurai to Ramesvaram, and the Indian Railways timetable site seems permanently blocked (target of hackers?). Can anyone advise me about the best way of making the trip? I'm in my eighties, so I'm not doing hard travel these days. I would even spring for a luxury car and driver, if that were the best way to get to the Ramesvaram temples. But I was sort of hoping there would be a fast train with a first-class car going in the morning, with another going backin the evening. I tried to make this trip in 1993 but was blocked by the rioting that threw all of India's transportation system into turmoil. It's time to get it done.
