Agnitheertham, Rameswaram

3.5
#2 of 7 in Parks in Rameswaram
Awaken your inner spiritual side and take part in a Hindu religious experience at Agnitheertham. Step into the calm sea where, according to local tradition, pilgrims wash away their sins. Afterwards, proceed to the temple and bathe in one of its 22 holy wells to complete the ritual. There is a total of 64 holy bodies of water on site; however, the 22 located inside the temple itself indicate the number of arrows in Lord Rama's quiver. Devotees consider bathing in the temple's waters a major aspect of pilgrimage. To visit Agnitheertham and other attractions in Rameswaram, use our Rameswaram online trip itinerary builder .

  • One of the most important teerth for Hindus
  • Agni Tirtham is one of the Tirthas of Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu, India. The beach east of Ramanathaswamy Temple is known by this name. This Tirtham is one of the most visited Tirthams of Rameswaram for a holy bath.
  • Beautiful place with great sunrise view
  • Well maintained holy place, But the Temple administration should operate the battery car upto agneetirtham, so that old people can take bath here
  • One of the most important Theertham for Hindus to perform holy bath and also one of the reasons this place is always crowded.
