Dhanushkodi is a hamlet near the town of Rameswaram that is oft visited by locals in the nearby regions and tourists. Dhanushkodi is primarily a ghost town and human habitation in the town is almost non-existent, as only a few fishermen with their families live in this hamlet. This is because the entire town of Dhanushkodi was washed away during a severe storm a few decades back. Dhanushkodi is located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

Dhanushkodi is located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, a few miles away from the mainland. Tourists mainly travel to the region of Dhanushkodi to see the serene remains of a once prominent and bustling tourist hotspot. There are a few buildings that still stand in the ghost town, having survived the aftermath of the storm for a good number of years.

Another prominent feature of Dhanushkodi that draws many tourists to this place is the mysterious Adam’s Bridge, otherwise known as the Ram Sethu. This is a bridge made entirely of limestone that barely connects the Indian mainland with the Sri Lankan mainland. This bridge has high religious significance as followers of the Hindu faith believe that the bridge was built by Lord Rama in his quest to reach the land of Lanka, where Ravana is said to have reigned.
