This was one of my briefest visits to the
and I consoled myself that I had been here on my earlier trips and had good darshan many times. We could find time to visit the temple only the day before the wedding for which we had been to Rameswaram. Hence this is more of a picture blog of the photos I was allowed to take in the temple more than actual description. Rameswaram Temple
The size of the South Indian temples never fails to zap me and Rameswaram tops the list! We walked on the ever wet floor due to people having bath in the various theerthams at the temple and reached the Ganapathi sannidhi. It was very crowded as it was Vinayaga Chaturthi day. We then went inside and I was staring at the pillars and the huge nandhi like a village bumpkin.
The main sannidhi was so crowded that we could just glimpse the Siva Lingam. – Ramanatha Swamy and Ambal Parvathavardhini sannidhi was very calm and less crowded and we could have a leisurely darshan there. We also prayed at the Kalyana Sundareswarar sannidhi and came out to see the Anjaneyar. This Anjaneyar always fascinates me by the fact that the lower half of his body is always immersed in sea and only the upper half is visible for our darshan. This completed my shortest trip to this BIG temple.
Evening though the wedding jaanavasam took place right here, there was no time to visit the sannidhis but only to click a few snaps!
