Travel To Rameshwaram

Although Rameshwaram is a small town in Tamil Nadu, but its popularity as a temple town and as an important pilgrimage spot has ensured that it has great connectivity to most locations across the country. For those arriving from within the state, the best option is to go for road transfers or railway journeys. For those traveling from a distant place, the best thing to do is to take a flight. Although there is no Rameshwaram airport, the closest airport is in Madurai, which is a mere 170 kms away from the city center of Rameshwaram. If planning to enjoy the most scenic train journey to Rameshwaram, then the best and most availed Rameshwaram train route is the one that connects Chennai to Rameshwaram. Those planning to explore the place on their own, without a guide, would be best advised to take along a Rameshwaram route map for enjoying the trip without any hassles. The best part about such maps is that one can easily pin-point Rameshwaram temple locations on it, making sightseeing even easier.


By Air

There are no airports in Rameshwaram. In fact, the nearest airport to the Rameshwaram temple is in Madurai, from where the town center is almost 170 kms away. This journey can be completed via local buses, private taxis, self-driven vehicles or trains. For those traveling from far-off destinations to Rameshwaram, taking a flight to Madurai is the best option, in order to save time. Also, for visa formalities, the distance between Rameshwaram and Sri Lanka is best covered by a flight. On landing at Madurai airport, one can transfer to Rameshwaram via train or road. Sadly, the answer to the question of how to reach Rameshwaram by flight is that it is impossible, not until an airport is built here.


By Train

For those wondering how to reach Rameshwaram by train, there are a plethora of trains that bring people to this temple town. Although there is a shortage of direct trains to Rameshwaram from most cities across India, it is very well connected to cities within the southern states of India. For instance, the distance between Chennai and Rameshwaram is best covered by a train. Rameshwaram Express is one of the most popular trains among pilgrims and other tourists. The Rameshwaram express route is one of the shortest journeys one can hope to undertake from Chennai to get here.


By Road

If planning to travel from Ooty to Rameshwaram, road transfer is the best option. The distance between Madurai and Rameshwaram is also best covered by road. There are several private and government run buses available from Madurai that bring people to this temple town. The distance between Kanyakumari and Rameshwaram is best covered by a road journey, be it a hired mode of transportation or a self-driven vehicle.

      Trip was awesome. Driver neglected us taking us to some places. When ever we were asking about particular place he used to skip that particular place. Lee vacations only good for arranging hotels not for cabs and for other related services.

      Had trouble with Hotel Rooms & related Services. Nothing wrong with the booking. Cab driver was good however he should have been informed about the actual itinerary. Last day he dropped us by afternoon while we paid to have can till night. It was because he wasn't informed. This should have been dealt carefully from the agent and dealer side.

      Service by chill memories was very good. Hotels and cab service are excellent. Karthik is very good and he is always reachable. Driver doesn't know the timings of the places. As we don't know about the places there, he should plan day accordingly. He missed that. This is the only one thing I felt bad

    FAQ's of Rameshwaram

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Alcohol is not available in Rameshwaram since it is a temple town and a religious hub.

    Most shops and restaurants here accept only cash, apart from the large franchises and shopping malls.

    Thea beaches in Rameshwaram are rocky, and the sea is generally rough in the area. It is inadvisable to swim if one is not an experienced swimmer. However, at Agnitheertham one can dive in for a short swim or a dip before visiting the temples.

    Ideally, it would not take any more than 3 to 4 days to explore Rameshwaram entirely.

    The best time to visit Rameshwaram is from November to March or mid-April.
