Dhanushkodi Beach Point, Rameswaram

4.6
#1 of 8 in Parks in Rameswaram
A tour of Dhanushkodi Beach Point allows you to see how a bustling city became a ghost town after a natural disaster. A 1964 cyclone destroyed a railway line that caused over 100 deaths, while the total toll eventually reached over 1,800 casualties. When you visit, note how small islets and a series of rocks indicate where a small land connection exists between Sri Lanka and the southeastern tip of India. Visit during daylight hours if you don't like exploring spooky abandoned towns on your own.
