Agnitheertham, Rameswaram

3.1
#2 of 7 in Parks in Rameswaram
Awaken your inner spiritual side and take part in a Hindu religious experience at Agnitheertham. Step into the calm sea where, according to local tradition, pilgrims wash away their sins. Afterwards, proceed to the temple and bathe in one of its 22 holy wells to complete the ritual. There is a total of 64 holy bodies of water on site; however, the 22 located inside the temple itself indicate the number of arrows in Lord Rama's quiver. Devotees consider bathing in the temple's waters a major aspect of pilgrimage. To visit Agnitheertham and other attractions in Rameswaram, use our Rameswaram online trip itinerary builder .
