I first came to learn about Dhanushkodi when I was carpooling to office. I came home and did some research - it was more than 600 km from Bangalore and at that time I didn't think we would drive to Dhanushkodi some day. Well that "some day" came pretty soon and thankfully so. Dhanushkodi is indeed a visual spectacle, and so is the Pamban island, also known as Rameshwaram.
Firstly I should begin my story by saying that the road trip from Bangalore to Rameshwaram is the smoothest drive we have every been on. More than 80% of the route is a multi-lane highway, with the best roads in India. We started at 4:30 am and reached Rameshwaram by 1 pm, with a pit-stop for breakfast.
