Tourists can visit places such as Dhanushkodi Rama Sethu Point, Dhanushkodi Beach, Church remains, and Marine National Park in and around Dhanushkodi.

Although, there are several factors that draw Dhanushkodi to light, the highlight remains the fact that it has the only land border between India and Sri Lanka, which is one of the smallest borders in the world.

Dhanushkodi is an abandoned town at the south-eastern tip of Pamban Island in Tamil Nadu, India. It is situated to the South-East of Pamban and is about 18 miles (29 km) west of Sri Lanka. The town was destroyed during the 1964 Rameswaram cyclone and remains uninhabited.
