Tomorrow , we're up to -
And then to BANGALORE!!
Reaching the hotel in Rameswaram island!!
Viloondi Theertham .
Rama and Sita were walking by the shores while Sita became very thirsty and had no water to drink.
The sea water was too salty and there was no fresh water nearby.
So, Rama took his bow and arrow, dipped it into the sea at a particular point and made the water go fresh for Sita to drink it.
So nowadays, this is a popular tourist spot!!
Reached the station Mandapam in mainland India!
Trip through the train on top of the Laccadive sea( next to Indian Ocean )!!!

2 March 2019
Going back to the hotel.
Tomorrow up to Ramanathaswamy Temple and Pamban railway bridge.
House of Kalam!
Broken houses .
They were washed away from the Tsunami in 1964.
The railway station and the church were also washed away at the night time.
Before 1964, Rameswaram was just a temple and Dhanushkodi was a big city which was just 18 km from Sri Lanka. Dhanushkodi got washed away and it became a beach/ shore and now, Rameswaram is a town.
Dhanushkodi is now 29km away from Sri Lanka and Ram Setu is the broken bridge which connects it:)
Very good experience
On the way to Dhanushkodi Beach and Ram Setu!
Can't wait to see the bridge which connects the Rameswaram island to mainland Sri Lanka!!
Up to the pool soon//
Going to Dhanushkodi beach today afternoon!
Excited to walk on the shores!
Having late breakfast:)
A.P.J Abdul Kalam's memorial.

Jai Hind to the man!
