About Dhanushkodi Town
This is a beautiful yet abandoned temple town which is situated on the southern most part of the town of Rameshwaram. This town was washed away completely during the cyclone in the year 1964 and thus was abandoned. Touristry is budding in this place but it is advised to visit this place during the daytime only. Though there are people who term this place as the 'Ghost Town', the main reason for the caution is the lack of communication facilities from here. The nearmost town is Rameshwaram but the both of these places have no railway links at all. It is either a local bus or a car that you have to opt for to come and go back from here. The main attractions of this town are the Rama Temple and the confluence site of the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal. Indian Ocean is known as Ratnakara and the Bay of Bengal as the Mahodadhi in the local language.

How To Reach
Book a Package Tour
It is one hell of a road with Bay of Bengal on one side and Indian Ocean on the other. You have to walk 4 kms to reach the end point and its just magic. Go there to experience it. I won't spoil you with the details but just post some pics I took. The pics however, do no justice to the beauty of this place.While returning, I got lucky and got a lift till the bus stop from two locals. A big thanks to them.
