RAMESWARAM - RAMESWARA JYOTIRLINGA

To the left of Nandi there is a mandapam of modest size housing the Navagrahas. In front of the Nandi towards the entrance are situated the shrines for Ganapathi and Subrahmanya. Paying homage to them, they enter the Ramanathaswamy shrine to avail the darsan of the august linga installed by Sri Rama. As it is installed by Rama it is called Ramanathaswamy and it is one of the twelve Jyothirlingas. The serenity prevailing there bends the heads involuntarily. A sight of the Lord destroys a sin as grave a Brahmahatya. Offering soulful prayers, they next move to the Parvathavardhini shrine located to the right of sanctum sanctorum. The beautiful image of the Mother decorated with diamond jewellery and flower garlands lifts the soul. In front of the mandapam there are figures of Rama, Sita, Lakshman, Hanuman and Sugriva, the principal characters in the Epic and they beckon attention and veneration. To its north lies the Kasi Viswanatha shrine in which the linga brought by Hanuman from Kailas is installed. The Visalakshi Mandir lies adjacent to it. Daily prayers are offered to these deities first and then to Ramanathaswamy and Mother Parvathi Varidhini.
