#2 of 7 in Parks in Rameswaram
Water Body Religious Site
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. Make Agnitheertham a part of your Rameswaram vacation plans using our Rameswaram holiday planner.

Where to stay in Rameswaram

Built on a tiny island, Rameswaram offers limited accommodation options, most ranging from standard to budget--though some economy hotels still offer luxury service. Frequent visits by pilgrims have spurred a number of boutique hotels and residential-type lodgings, as well as villas. Many mid-range hotels on the eastern part of the island offer a beachfront, while shoestring travelers have a number of options across Rameswaram.
