Traveled to Madurai,Rameswaram & Kanyakumari last week.Though it was a pilgrimage trip with parents,I managed to click few snaps.I am sharing few of my favorites from the trip here.

We got this sunrise on way to krishnagiri.

From Madurai we proceeded to rameswaram.

Rameswaram is a island which is connected to the indian subcontienent by The pamban bridge.

Dhanushkodi in Rameswaram was always one of my favourite places.

Dhanushkodi was a flourishing tourist and pilgrimage town before the 1964 cyclone.The entire village was washed away in this cyclone along with a train.

Every time I go there the place seems to haunt me with its broken houses & boats.

The drive to dhanushkodi is always a great experience with a striaght road connecting rameswaram & dhanushkodi which is covered from both sides by sea.

Indian govt had declared dhanushkodi as ghost city & nowadays only a few fishing floks live there.

After rameswaram we proceeded to kanyakumari.
& winded up the trip after visiting trivandrum.
