About Pamban Bridge In Rameshwaram

The Pamban Bridge a massive structure over the Indian Ocean and the first sea as well as cantilever bridge constructed in India. Built as a part of South Indian Railway project, this bridge is an engineering marvel and was completed in 1911. The bridge connects Rameswaram on Pamban Island to mainland India.

With 143 piers, spanning 2 km between the mainland and the island, it is the second longest sea bridge in India after the Bandra-Worli sea link on Mumbai's western coast. Pamban Bridge in Rameshwaram is arch-shaped and built on artificial sandstone.

Pamban Bridge opening for ships makes it all the more alluring. A German engineer Scherzer designed the central part of this bridge that opens for the ships and boats to cross under the bridge.

Opened on 24th February, 1914, Rameshwaram Pamban Bridge is believed to have built on a sacred spot – Pamban. Here Lord Rama is said to have shot an arrow to the ground for a spring to emerge so that Goddess Sita could quench her thirst.  

Pamban Bridge story is a poignant one. According to the legends, a man sacrificed his only son to save thousands of people traveling in a train passing through the bridge.

Pamban bridge length is 2.3 km (road bridge) and 2.6 km (rail bridge). The Pamban road bridge is also known as Annai Indira Gandhi Road Bridge. Pamban Railway Bridge is also considered to be the longest rail bridge. This railway bridge has been upgraded to carry broad gauge trains by Indian Railways in 2007.

Visitors will also get a chance to view the sea in its grand form, unlike any other place in the city. They can choose to travel either on road or by train and both ways, the views are superbly fantastic.

    Arun's 7 days trip to Rameshwaram

    Really good service right from the booking of the trip upto the very end. Support was always available. Hotel were what we expected. The cab was right on time at the airport for our pickup. Local cab driver helped us a lot, with the best places to eat, drink tea and shopping. I would surely recomm
    end TravelTriangle to my friends. Funny enough I was recommended TravelTriangle by my friend.

    Shivanshu's 4 days trip to Rameshwaram

    Our Driver Harsha Vardhan assigned for the entire trip did an amazing job. Special appreciation to him for making our trip memorable and easy. Our package was good but the itinerary could have been better with Coonoor toy train on last day rather than 3rd day as we had to comeback to Ooty all the wa
    y. And again go to the same route to reach Coimbatore airport. Hotel La Ruchi de Prince was very good including the wide range of delicious breakfast and the 5 star services. When we reached Hotel Kemps cave in Ooty on our 2nd day, we were shifted to Hotel Baron beside it but the rooms were good as per 3 star. But the food needs to be improved a lot as the dinner we had there was not that great. Due to which on 3rd day we had dinner at Anand Bhavan and it was super delicious. Overall it was a good experience and a memorable family trip. Ooty Lake boating was good. Pykara Waterfalls and lake can be avoided. Mysore palace was very photogenic. Mysore Zoo was good but you need atleast 2-3 hours to roam there.

    Venkata's 5 days trip to Rameshwaram

    Overall trip experience with travel triangle is average. The cab that was provided is not good as AC didn’t functioned properly. And the driver is either good nor bad. Little bitter experience we had with the cab and the driver. Supposed to get the cab changed as per the cab coordinator but he didn’
    t care abt it and the agent is also less bothered. For the next I personally will not prefer this agent and I will also suggest others also not to prefer this agent.
