R for Rameswaram

The southern tip of India that connects Sri Lanka, not only has a political significance but a very important historical / mythological significance. It is said that Lord Ram built a bridge from here to Sri Lanka to rescue his wife Sita who was abducted by Ravan. There are evidences to prove that this bridge (Ram Setu) indeed exists. A beautiful temple, lot of history and a brilliant beach - this place is definitely on my list. While Danushkoti was washed away in a cyclone, the temple still stands strong, a testimony to the brilliant architecture of our times.
