Kothandaramaswamy Temple is another one of the most popular Rameshwaram tourist attractions. This temple is located on the beach, and houses idols of Sita, Ram, Lakshman and Hanuman. The Agniteertham sacred bath is also a place where one can spend some time.

      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

      Driver was not at all friendly. When we reach coimbatore, he was not even coming out of the car to meet us. Myself and my wife had to search for his car in parking area. he didnt even help us with placing luggages in dickey. We have seen him friendly with other people/drivers on the way. he never smiled at uss and didnt even say good morning which is very basic manners tourist drivers should have. Firsttime ever in my lifetime i had tour with such a difficult driver. There were some communciation gap happened in between with driver and agency. I had to inform sky tours to coordinate it. He just did his duty by taking us to good spots. And his drIving is good. I am very happy with the services provided by hotel. We were having headache when we reached there and hotel guys gave us tablet and vicks. They have arranged very nice food from outside which is delicious and Moderate price.

    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.
