RAMESWARAM

When God desires, who will not help? Even a squirrel helped according to his might, carrying dry sand by rolling on the beach. Rama was pleased with the assistance given and appreciatively patted it. The imprints of the fondling fingers of Rama are to be seen on the back of a squirrel. This shows the enthusiasm shown
by all in the construction of the bridge, as if
whole Nature was up against the evildoer.

The famous Adi Setu was started at the
seashore 3 miles from Adi Jagannatha swami at Darbha Sayanam. A convenient place had to be selected for starting the construction, for which Rama had to go around for selecting a vantagepoint, evidently with Nala the super-architect. Devotees follow the footprints of Rama and traverse the path. This Journey is called Setu Yatra. Thus pilgrims proceed from Ramanathapuram to Uppoor, 20 miles north-east of Ramanathapurarn and worship the Veyyiluganath, a Vinayaka worshipped by Lord Rama himself Vinayaka or Ganesa isthe Lord of Success and is worshipped first in an) ceremonial and auspicious occasion of a Hindu's life.
