Rameshwaram Mani Darshan Timings


Rameshwaram Mani Darshan

Sri Ramanathaswamy Temple is the most popular temple of Rameshwaram, which is situated near the sea in a small island connected to the mainland via Pamban Bridge. It is undoubtedly the most important part of a Rameshwaram tour. It is one of the famous Pilgrimages of the country.

Lord Rama had worshipped Lord Shiva here. Lord Rama, who is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, while coming back after killing demon Ravana had offered his prayers to Lord Shiva. Demon Ravana, who had kidnapped Goddess Sita, was a Brahmin king. As Lord Rama had killed him to rescue the Goddess, had decided to seek blessings by worshipping Lord Shiva.

In order to offer prayers, Lord Rama had asked Hanuman to get lingam from the Himalayas. Hanuman didn’t return with lingam on time due to which Goddess Sita has created a lingam herself. Lord Rama then worshipped Lord Shiva at the auspicious moment. Lord Shiva blessed Lord Rama and upon his request also manifested himself in the lingam. It is the said that the same lingam is now present in the temple.

It is also said that the lingam brought by Hanuman from Kailash has also been kept in the temple. The lingam is known as Vishwalingam or Hanumalingam. Prayers are offered at Hanumalingam first before offering prayers to the Lord Ramanathaswamy.
