Dhanushkodi Photos

Dhanushkodi was a coastal town in Rameswaram island, hosting a railway station, a pier that ran ferry across to Sri Lanka. Now most of it is under the sea and the rest is only seen as a collection sand dunes, due to the total damage caused by 1964 cyclone.

In 2004 December tsunami, the sea around Dhanushkodi receded about 500 metres from the coastline exposing the submerged part of the township for a while.
