We reached pondicherry early in the morning,since it was all night journey we rested a bit and started to explore the pondi(locally pondicherry is called so). Tasted some local cuisine, then we visited Auroville- place known for peace. You get to see people from all over the world visiting the place, only the people with passes will be left inside the meditation centre. We then had good time at a sports bar n left to our rooms

Day 2

We visited Temple early in the morning and we left for Dhanushkoti. Since the ride was scenic we stopped in between few places for photos and explored bit of remains of old railway station of Dhanushkoti,which washed away completely during floods. You get to see pamban bridge on the way,view from bridge is too good.

Rameswaram is a temple town on the east coast. It has been mentioned in Ramayan. Famous for Ranganatha Swamy temple,visit the temple and take bath in the sacred wells. Next to Rameswaram is Dhanushkoti, It is from Dhanushkoti the ancient ram sethu was built to srilanka. It lays just 30kms from srilanka. On the way to dhanushkoti you get see the pamban bridge,Dr APJ abdul kalam memorial, n the remains of ancient dhanushkoti. Rameswaram is a tourist centre you get plenty of options to stay.
