Rameswaram - ONE OF the four dhams (Abodes)
The great Sage and reformer of 8th century, Sri Shankaracharya (Adi Shankara), grouped the four mostimportant temples towns of India and named them 'The Char Dham' (the four abodes).
These four temple towns are
• Puri in east
• Dwarka in West
• Badrinath in north and
• Rameshwaram in South.
It is said that one who travels to all these Dhams in a single tour, attains the ultimate salvation and is freed from the chain of rebirth cycle.These towns are considered to be the most sacred by Hindu religion and visiting them is considered a must for everyone before they set upon the final journey of their life. Rameshwaram with temples like Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, and Kothandaraswamy Temple is definitely the most important of all the four. People from all over the world and of all religion come to Rameshwaram to make their lives relieved of all the sins of their past lives.
