about dhanushkodi beach

Eerily deserted and mystically beautiful, the Dhanushkodi Beach makes for a marvellous sight to behold. Endlessly stretching silvery sands, cool breeze, crystal clear water, and age-old ruins give the place a dream like a feel. Head here early morning to enjoy a sunrise you will remember and cherish for a lifetime. 

Even with all its allure,  Dhanushkodi Beach  remains a very emotional place for many. Prior to 1964, the place was a merry fishing village, with families, schools, temples, a railway station , and a church. On a fateful night, a cyclone swept away all that the place had, sparing nothing but a few remains. After that, the place was never rehabilitated and things never became the same. The moss covered, blackened buildings one can see here today were once the home to unfortunate and unassuming fishermen.

It is a nice drive, if the weather is nice. Otherwise there is nothing visible from the end point (Ram Sethu point). It is an hour long drive from main Temple.
