Rameshwaram Pamban bridge photos
The Rameshwaram Pamban bridge is a cantilever bridge on the Palk Strait. It is almost 2.3 km long, is the first sea bridge and the longest in India until 2010. It rests on an artificial sandstone reef and connects the Mandapam in the Mainland to the Pamban Island. In 1988 a parallel road bridge was constructed and from here one could see the Rail Bridge. Until the construction of the road bridge the Pamban rail bridge was the only transport for hundreds of pilgrims who thronged to see the temple in the island. The boat mail ran on this track until 1964 from Madras-Egmore up to Dhanushkodi.The. The passengers who had to travel to Ceylon would ferry from dhanushkodi and reach Talaimannar in the mannar island of Ceylon.
