RAMESWARAM -TAMIL NADU



Rameswaram; also transliterated as Rameswaram, Rameshwaram is a municipality in the Ramanathapuram district of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is on Pamban Island separated from mainland India by the Pamban channel and is about 40 kilometers from Mannar Island, Sri Lanka. It is in the Gulf of Mannar, at the tip of the Indian peninsula. Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island, is connected to mainland India by the Pamban Bridge. Rameswaram is the terminus of the railway line from Chennai and Madurai. Together with Varanasi, it is considered to be one of the holiest places in India to Hindus and is part of the Char Dham pilgrimage.
According to Hindu ancient texts, Lord Ram had built a bridge from here across the sea to Lanka to rescue his wife Sita from her abductor Ravana. The Temple, dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, is at the center of the town and is closely associated with Rama and Shiva. The temple and the town are considered holy pilgrimage sites for Shaivas and Vaishnavas.

Rameswaram is the closest point from which to reach Sri Lanka from India and geological evidence suggests that the Rama Sethu was a former land connection between India and Sri Lanka. The town has been in the news over the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project, Kachchatheevu, Sri Lankan Tamil refugees, and capturing local fishermen for alleged cross-border activities by Sri Lankan Forces. Rameswaram is administered by a municipality established in 1994. The town covers an area of 53 km2 (20 sq mi) and had a population of 44,856 as of 2011. Tourism and fishery employ the majority of the workforce in Rameswaram.

The history of Rameswaram is centered around the island being a transit point to reach Sri Lanka (Ceylon historically) and the presence of Ramanathaswamy Temple. Tevaram, the 7th–8th-century Tamil compositions on Shiva by the three prominent Nayanars (Saivites) namely Appar, Sundarar, and Thirugnanasambandar. The Chola king Rajendra Chola I (1012 – 1040 CE) had control of the town for a short period. The Jaffna kingdom (1215–1624 CE) had close connections with the island and claimed the title Setukavalan meaning custodians of the Rameswaram. Hinduism was their state religion and they made generous contributions to the temple. Setu was used in their coins as well as in inscriptions as a marker of the dynasty.
According to Firishta, Malik Kafur, the head general of Alauddin Khalji, the ruler of Delhi Sultanate, reached Rameswaram during his political campaign in spite of stiff resistance from the Pandyan princes in the early 14th century. He erected a mosque by the name of Alia al-Din Khaldji in honor of the victory of Islam. During the early 15th century, the present-day Ramanathapuram, Kamuthi, and Rameswaram were included in the Pandya dynasty. In 1520 CE, the town came under the rule of the Vijayanagara Empire. The Sethupathis, the breakaway from Madurai Nayaks, ruled Ramanathapuram and contributed to the Ramanathaswamy temple. The most notable of them are the contributions of Muthu Kumara Ragunatha and Muthu Ramalinga Sethupathi, who transformed the temple into an architectural ensemble. The region then fell under the rule of different leaders Chanda Sahib (1740 – 1754 CE), Arcot Nawab, and Muhammed Yusuf Khan (1725 – 1764 CE) in the middle of the 18th century. In 1795 CE, Rameswaram came under the direct control of the British East India Company and was annexed to the Madras Presidency. After 1947, the town became a part of Independent India.
