Out of twelve Jotirlinga in India. , Rameshwar is one of the twelve. Near Rameshwaram there is Dhanushkote where for Rama the Wanar-Sena(Troop of monkies) built the bridge on ocean to Lanka by stones.(In earth quake in last century the bridge not there now). You can also purchase the traditional silk sarees there. In this month only I visited Rameshwaram.
