Rameshwaram And Madurai

Rameshwaram

The most important holy place in South India and one of the char dhams, or eternal abodes of the Lord on the Earth, Rameshwaram is also one of the twelve Jyotirlingas. It is beautifully located as an island surrounded by pristine waters. The island is spread in an area of 61.8 square kilometres and is in the shape of a conch. The glories of Rameshwaram are extensively described in the Vedic literatures, especially in the Skanda Purana, which devotes a whole section called ‘setu mahatmya’ about the wonderful glories of Rameshwaram. The grandest part of the temple is the 1219 m pillared corridor consisting of 3.6 m high granite pillars, richly carved and well proportioned. It is the longest corridor in the world. Other holy places in Rameshwaram are Dhanushkoti, Gandhamadana parvata, Rama Pada, Sita Kunda, Rama Kunda, Lakshmana Tirtha, Hanuman temple.

Madurai

Madurai was called in the ancient times as ‘Koodal’ where the multitude of devas and rishis joined to worship Lord Vishnu, who came to be known as ‘Koodal Alagar’. It is also one of the 108 divya desams. Another important temple is Alagar Koil, about 20 kms from Madurai. Here Lord Vishnu performed the role of the elder brother of Meenakshi to get her marries to Sundareshvara. The enormous temple complex is dedicated to Shiva, known here as Sundareshvara and his consort Parvati or Meenakshi. River Kritamala branches into two before entering Madurai and encircles it like a garland.
