    Dhanushkodi Point
    Dhanushkodi: tip of the bow. Ghost town in India.
    Dhanushkodi beach, within the popularly called 'ghost town' is one of the most intriguing places I've ever been to and it lies at the southern most tip of Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu. This place shelters the merging point where the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal meet !

    A history of the town. Nature's crude disasters.
    Dhanushkodi was a crowded, busy city before 1964 On 1964, December 22, a heavy storm hit the city and washed away the entire Dhanushkodi, shattering it into pieces. That is the reason why this town is called a ghost town, with its remains of the past & a scary image of the seas.

    A lesson from history. The dangers of the sea !
    Although there are a lot of people that one will find coming here to experience this amazing place, one will not find a lot of people swimming or bathing into the sea, nor any adventurous sports being performed here, simply because of the unpredictable nature of its waters !

    Remnants of a life. Beach turned site for remains.
    If you are interested into delving into the past like I have always been, there is much to do & explore on this beach apart from the sea. One can visibly see the actual remains of things that used to stand here at one point like this old church, which got destroyed in the storm.

    Pamban Bridge ! Connecting the ghost town !
    On our way to Rameshwaram, we also got the opportunity to see India's first sea bridge and the longest until 2010. It really was a very refreshing piece of architectural design: very basic in its appearance and yet, standing against the ruins of time since so long.

    Fishing with the locals. Calm blue waters !!
    Regardless of the dark and stormy past that this place has, we could see the people have fun and experience all that it had to offer, be it the beautiful landscapes to witness or taking in the fishing culture of the local people living here now. It was a delight to be here.

    Rising back to life. Evening walks along the beach.
    Walking along the shores of this beach was a different kind of experience; it was sad to see how ruined this town was after the storm but it was equally beautiful to see how strongly it had emerged out of the debris of that disaster. This instantly became one of my favourites.

    Leaving this beach was a little disheartening, since I'm never up for leaving places while the sun hasn't st yet. But due to a shortage of time, we could only see & experience so much. However, the pink skies on our journey back and the sun setting in the distance was wonderful.
