Rameshwaram Jyotirlinga Tour

7500 / Per person


  • Madurai, Rameshwaram, Kanyakumari

Overview

Jyotirlingas are sacred shrines of Lord Shiva; it is believed that Lord Shiva himself visited these places and hence they have a special place in the hearts of devotees. There are 12 of them in India.

Jyotirlinga means ‘column or pillar of light’. The ‘stambha’ symbol represents that there is no beginning or end.

When Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu had an argument about who was the supreme god, Lord Shiva appeared as a column of light and asked each one to find the ends. Neither could do it. It is believed that the places where these columns of light fell is where the jyotirlingas are located.

Other places of interest in Rameshwaram are Ramanathaswamy Temple, Dhanushkodi, Agnitheertham Gandamadana Parvatham etc. Stay overnight at your hotel in Rameshwaram.

Rameshwaramis of severe mythological importance, it may be scenically well endowed, but its true character is revealed in its collection of Lord Rama temples, each backed with a story from the epic Ramayana. Lord Rama camped here, worshipped here, solidified his plans of rescuing his wife Sita from demon king Ravana, sighed on having Sugreev’s support whose monkey army built him a bridge of stepping stones (Ram Setu) up to the Lankan coast, crossed-over to the other side, slain Ravana, returned with his wife, worshipped Lord Shiva to absolve from any sin he may have committed during this war, took a holy dip in the sea, and installed a sand Shivalingam which later became the greatly revered Ramanatha Swamy temple. Rameshwaram could be pilgrim-heavy, but there is still so much solitude, so much greenery, and so many heart-wrenching stories of bravery from the Ramayana, and real life too. The drive on the Pamban Bridge over a flat blue sea will be a perfect prelude to your journey into the land of Lord Rama.
