New Delhi: Dhanushkodi was a small island at the southern tip of Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu.




Hindu scriptures says that at the request of Vibeeshana, brother of Ravan and ally of Ram, Rama broke the Sethu with one end of his bow and hence the name Dhanushkodi, Dhanush meaning Bow and Kodi meaning end.

It is also said that Rama marked this spot for Setu with one end of his famous bow. Bath in holy Sethu at the junction of the two seas normally precedes the pilgrimage to Rameswaram.

A series of rocks and islets found in a line are shown as remnants of the ancient Setu also called as Rama's Bridge.
