Rameswaram is one of the chardham places.
Temple is 1.5 Kms away from the Railway station.
Autos do not go to the eastern entrance.
Fresh yourself and have a dip in agni theertham , the sea near the temple.
, go near the southern entrance and buy a ticket to bath in the 22 Theerthams inside the temple.
A ticket costs Rs.25 per head.
The 22nd theertham , i.e, the Kodi theertham is considered to be as holy as the ganga river.
After that , visit the temple. Preferably take an archanai ticket and visit the shrine.
Other places to visit are Ramar Padham , Lakshmana theertham and Hanuman temple.
You can also visit Dhanushkodi which is connected by a very narrow strip of land. U can watch the sea both sides.
Also you can visit Dr.Abdul Kalam memorial.
Have a nice vist to Rameshwaram.
Jai Shree Ram !
Om Nama Shivaya !

That is just a little 2 much. Moreover if u take this Rs.25 ticket , it would be like sharing one bucket with 3 piligrims. Moreover people in group have preference over others. They will get a bucket/head. Moreover , Pandits do not do this activity. It is just some other ppl who come from nearby areas like Ramnad , Paramakkudi and Mandapam.
