Story of a Ghost Town

The word Dhanushkoti can be split into dhanush (bow) and kodi (the end) It literally means “The end of the bow” in tamil language. Ramayana depicts that this is the place where lord Rama pointed the end of his bow (Godhandam) and ordered his troops to built a bridge (Ram-sethu) across the sea to reach the Sri-Lanka for the rescuing of his wife Sita.

Dhanushkodi is a Beautiful place lies as a land of sand in the center of roaring ocean (Indian Ocean) and a silent sea (Bay of Bengal). Dhanushkodi fills the visitors with the feel of awe by it’s spectacular view of clear Blue sea , Roaring tides , Beach and the Lonely Devastated Ghost land !.

During the reign of Early Tamil Kingdoms (Pandya Kingdom, Chola Kingdom, Jaffna Kingdom, Sethupathi kings rule) Dhanushkodi plays the role as a Harbour city, From here the pearls (White, Black, and many more varieties), different types of Conchs, corals and lots of precious things taken from the sea were exported to Burma, China, Rome, Egypt, and lots other foreign countries.

Dhanushkodi city plays a vital role in import export activities during the various kingdoms and also in the British rule, even in the independent India too.

But , If you go there now, you may just view the remnants and shattered pieces of the prominent city.If you have the ears to listen the silence too.. you may heard the sounds of cries, the recitements of the prayers in the remnants of the catholic church, the noises from the broken pieces of busy railway station and the port office.
