  • If you going there to see something related to Abdul Kalam. They converted his place into shopping malls and selling products and some fake items too....Like ray-ban goggles in Rs130. Just consider this place as shopping malls. Nothing else. That's it.
  • Proud to get the chance to see house of Kalam. Nice Collection of gifts of Dr APJ Kalam. Didn't like the idea of a shopping center.
  • Don't miss the chance. Every one need to go and visit the place. U can see 🏅 medals which had been received by sir. Wow nice place.
  • The House of Former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam located at Rameswaram is a must to visit place. Dr. Kalam, who was a renowned scientist and also renowned writer, was born and brought up in the town of Rameswaram near Mosque Street. The place is an ideal to get a glimpse into an extraordinary life o this simple man. His residence has been converted into a museum. Several pictures and awards of him from his childhood are kept on display in this Three-storied building.
