the journey till that place makes you feel that you are not a part of the world you know and the place makes you uneasy because of its history, i have not been able to get this place and its people out of my head!

“The end!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Dhanushkodi is an astounding place to visit. The perfect setting of a destroyed world! It is a half hour's bus ride from Rameswaram temple to this No man's land which is literally at the World's end! A beautiful blue water and white sand beach beckons you as you enter the old port town of Dhanushkodi! Further down from there you need to take 4X4 jeep or hop on to one of the Vans to go to the old city, which was swalled by a bellowing cyclone in the 1960's. The place is beautiful and has a ghostly look! Ironic, but true. There is the old dilapidated Church and Railway station and an old temple where a statue of Hanuman and one of the floating stones is kept and worshipped. You can shop around for pearls and other jewels made out of shells and corals. Take a dip in the sea which you can find on both the sides, to your left is the calm waters of Bay of Bengal and to the right is the roary Indian Ocean!
I loved being in this place and cherished every moment I spent there!

Tip: Make sure you visit the place either in the morning hours (take the first bus at 6). Going in the afternoon is a bad idea since you will be literally fried in the hot sun!

“Must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Worth the drive in a four wheel drive jeep! Must visit if you like relatively wild beach area. There are remnants of an old church, temple and railroad.
