It would be difficult to objectively rationalise 22 closely located wells with water in them having totally different tastes. This along with many other miracles related to the epic Ramayana contributes to the serenity of the holy pilgrimage site of Rameshwaram. Rameshwaram holds a special place in Hindu mythology as it is where Lord Rama built a bridge across the sea to rescue Sita from the clutches of Ravana in Sri Lanka. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Shiva and believed to be one of the twelve Jyotirlingas. The lost land of Dhanushkodi beach along the eastern end of the island and adams bridge are also must visits.
