Dhanushkodi – No man’s land

This was a happy town before the cyclone consumed the entire place in 1964. No one has lived here ever since. Now it’s a tourist spot and there are small stalls selling refreshments. Its around 20 kms from Rameshwaram, and all that remains are the ruins of what existed when this was a happy place filled with life.
