RAMESWARAM - RAMESWARA JYOTIRLINGA

Antiquity

Though this sacred region has been abounding in famous thirthas and sacred spots right from the time for creation, it is only from the Treta yuga its fame started spreading far and near. In the dim past, it was a primeval forest ever grown with rich verdure. Abduction of Mother Sita by the ten-headed demon Ravana brought Ayodhyapati Rama to this end of sacred Ind. On reaching the Dhanushkodi, Rama propitiated the Sea-god with fast for three days to give in for the conveyance of Monkey Brigade, but to no effect. Finding him unyielding, Rama threatened to dry up the entire jalarasi with his powerful missiles. Appearing before Rama shivering, he pleaded that he was law bound, and it was against the laws of Nature to give up his inherent quality of impenetrability, but would certainly cooperate in the construction of bridge, if proposed. Argument being righteous and based on sound logic, Rama forgiving him, embarked upon the plan of building a 100 yojan -- long bridge across the sea.
