Hanuman Temple, Rameswaram

(3.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Just a short distance from the famous Ramanathawamy Temple, Hanuman Temple is dedicated to the Hindu deity Hanuman, otherwise known as the Monkey God. Outside the temple are the extraordinary floating stones, that have to be seen to be believed. Legend explains these and the bridge was built by Vanara Sena built it to rescue Goddess Sita from the demon King Ravana’s capture. The priest will tell you the stories in more detail and if you want to take a floating stone home there is a shop selling these within the temple.

  • Nothing much....a place you can give a miss if shortage of time..Lord hanumana statue is there with 5 faces. You can cover this temple in 5mins. 
  • It was like I met real Hanuman Ji, Good place to visit, See HANUMAN Ji, See the temple and relax for some and move to another religious place 
  • Some one has put a big Hanuman idol (not long ago) and is claiming to build a temple there, Idol is worth a watch and you get to see floating stones too there.
