    It offers very nice collection of quotes from Sir Kalam. Also lots of his books can be bought from here. His whole book collection is showcased here. Its very interesting to know his history and from where he started.

    - Greatness of place as we know is that it's Kalam Sahib's place Cons - If you are visiting the place in your own/hired vehicle then you will be forced to go inside the market build in parking. - In the market nobody will tell you the way to Kalam Sahib's house. If you ask, you will be treated harshly - First floor of building (his actual residence) is a small museum which is made & maintained by Kalam Sahib's elder brother and his family - 2nd floor of house is again converted to a big shop

    This place has collection of all the awards, honours and memories of Dr Kalam. The tip floor has small shopping area. The place could've been better maintained. Footwears are not allowed inside.

    It actually feels good to be there. But I personally feel that they could have organised the place better coz it represents one of the great minds our nation ever seen.

    Has complete picture of the contributions of the renowned space scientist and erstwhile president of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam here. His original thatched roof house is rebuilt as a small 3 storey building and is a museum. The third floor sells souvenirs.

Where to stay in Rameswaram
