Bridging the gap to Nirvana
Discover the closest point between India and Sri Lanka in Rameshwaram and important pilgrimage centre to the Hindus. In fact, a bath in sea here near Dhanushkodi is part of life cycle for the Hindu, which includes a bath in Allahabad and prayers in temples in both places to complete the cleansing away of sins to attain final nirvana or no rebirth.
Geologists suggest that the Adam's bridge was a former land connection between India and Sri Lanka. The Ramayana says this is where Rama built the bridge with his monkey army to reach Lanka to vanquish Ravana and rescue his queen. Watch the staunch Hindus perform the rituals in solemn prayer sitting high on a rock by the sea.
