  1. Ramanathaswamy temple dedicated to the god Shiva, located on Pamban Island (aka Rameswaram Island), India (9.2881,79.3175). Yesterday I did not know what a Gopuram was, today it seems I’ve seen all of them 😉

  2. The structure in the picture is Ramanatha Swami Temple, in the town of Rameshwaram on Rameshwaram Island in Taml Nadu, the closest approach on the eastern coast of India to the island of Sri Lanka.

  3. Rameswaram is a town in Ramanathapuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is located on Pamban Island separated from mainland India by the Pamban channel and is about 50 kilometres from Mannar Island, Sri Lanka. Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island, is connected to mainland India by the Pamban Bridge. Rameswaram is the terminus of the railway line from Chennai and Madurai. Together with Kashi, it is considered to be one of the holiest places in India to Hindus, and part of the Char Dham pilgrimages. Hence, it is a bustling pilgrim centre.
