People thought that, it was another rainy day of 1964 and done their day’s routine work and went asleep. They don’t know that they never see again either their loved ones or their golden land. Yes most of them were vanished, buried in their land instantly when the cyclone struck the harbour town Dhanuskodi and killed thousand of people instantly on the fateful day. When you look at those reaming structures of the buildings how the town was functioned in a systematic way On that fateful day a group of 500 students from Madurai city boarded on the train to Dhanuskodi. On the way some of the students got down at the near by railway station and the rest went to Dhanuskodi. But, none of them knew that they are heading to their burial ground.

Advice from travelers on what to do in Dhanushkodi


I visited Dhanushkodi on 25th February, 2010. I took a jeep from Rameswaram (cost INR 1000.00). The first few kilometers were along the NH 49 (the road was being widened). but the last 8 or 9 kilometers were along sands of the beach only. There was cell phone coverage (only through Aircel service). The journey was unforgettable, with sea converging along both sides. There were no permanent human settlement, but few temporary huts with merchandise like bottled water, potato chips, shells & corals were there. We saw large number of sea birds, & surprisingly few horses! The land's end was extremely beautuiful unlike Kanyakumarika which was crowded. Every visitor to Rameswaram should visit Dhanushkodi because it was the place where Lord Rama built the bridge over the sea to go to Srilanka, & Swami Vivekananda landed here from America on 26th January, 1897.

Hello hi Dhanushkodi is around 20 kms from Rameswaram. You can reach Rameswaram from Madhurai either by bus or by train. madhurai to rameswaram takes around 3 hours journey by train i think. The Pamban Bridge is on the way to madhurai to rameswaram. Dhanushkodi is a remote place. You wont get food, accommodation, electricity, mobile coverage etc at Dhanushkodi. It will be better for you to stay at Rameswaram and you can have jeep from there to dhanushkodi. (Cost INR 850 i think) The journey from Rameswaram to dhanushkodi will be a wonderful experience to you. You can see "sea" on both sides. The road ends at Moonram Chaithram and after there is no roads.. But dont worry. The jeep will go beyond that place till the end. Moonram chithram to dhanushkodi will take around half an hour journey through the sea shore. And it was an unforgettable experience. We stayed at Rameswaram at Chinnaswamy lodge. But it was not that much good. It will be better for you to arrange accommodation before you leave. Although there are many hotels and lodges there, since the Rameswaram temple is near, it is not that much easy to get accommodation.
