Gandamadana Parvatham

The Gandamadana Parvatham also known as Rama Patham is one of the pristine religious destinations in Rameswaram where devotees flock in great numbers as the place has notable significance in the Indian epic Ramayana.

Gandamadana Parvatham is located on a beautiful hillock about 3 km from Sri Ramanathaswamy temple. Devotees believe that there are footprints of Lord Rama here. A mandap has been built around the spot. There are interesting legends told to explain the existence of the site. One of them states that Lord Rama met Vibhishana, the brother of the demon king Ravana, at this place. Lord Vibhishana helped Rama in defeating Ravana in the battle to rescue Sita. There is an image of Vibhishana in the temple. 

The spot is the highest point in Rameswaram island and gives an aerial view of the mesmerising island. Besides religious significance, the place is also known for its serene picturesque surroundings best viewed during sunrise and sunset.

The nearby attractions are Satchi Hanuman temple and Sukreevar Theertham.
