DETAILED OVERVIEW

If you are planning a getaway to Madurai and Rameswaram, then you can try this 2-day local sightseeing tour for a complete experience of exploring some of the famous places. The city of Madurai, inhabited since the 3rd century BCE, is built around the Meenakshi Amman Temple, which acted as the geographic and ritual centre of the ancient city of Madurai. Rameswaram is a small town in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu on Pamban Island (40 km from Mannar Island in Sri Lanka). It is separated from mainland India by the Pamban channel and is considered to be one of the holiest places in India to Hindus, which is a part of the Char Dham pilgrimage. The history of Rameswaram is centred around the island being a transit point to reach Sri Lanka (Ceylon historically) and the presence of Ramanathaswamy Temple. Want to know more?
