Dhanushkodi, Southeastern Tip of India

Few visuals from Dhanushkodi Beach, which is the southern east tip of India.  Radhika and I took a 90 min flight to Madurai from Hyderabad and then embarked on a 3-hr taxi ride to Dhanushkodi.  Ram Setu bridge (submerged under the water) which is partially seen on a low tide day, begins from this point.

Dhanushkodi is an abandoned town at the south-eastern tip of Pamban Island in the state of Tamil Nadu in India.  It is southeast of Pamban and is about 24 kilometers west of Talaimannar in Sri Lanka. The town was destroyed during the 1964 Rameswaram cyclone and remains uninhabited in the aftermath. 

The National Highway completed the 9.5-km-long road – 5 km from Mukuntharayar Chathiram to Dhanushkodi and 4.5 km from Dhanushkodi to Arichamunai. Until 2016, Dhanushkodi was reachable either on foot along the seashore or in jeeps.
