Hi Mundwa

Sankarnarayanan is right. There are no direct trains between Rameshwaram to Trivandrum. You will necessarily need to switch trains at either Madurai or Tuticorin. Madurai has a lot more frequency and you can possibly even combine a visit to the Madurai temple before switching another train to Trivandrum.

You have 5 options by train from Rameshwaram to Madurai:

Egmore Express (6714) leaves Rameswaram at 08:15 PM arrives Madurai at 10:35 PM

Madurai Passenger (752SR) leaves Rameshwaram at 05:20 AM arrives Madurai at 09:20 AM

Madurai Passenger (754SR) leaves Rameshwaram at 05:30 PM arrives Madurai at 09:35 PM

Madurai Passenger (756SR) leaves Rameshwaram at 11:40 PM arrives Madurai at 04:15 AM (overnighter)

Chennai Express (6102) leaves Rameshwaram at 05:00 PM arrives Madurai at 07:40 PM

You have 3 options by train from Madurai to Trivandrum:

Guruvayur Express (6127) leaves Madurai at 04:30 PM arrives Trivandrum at 11:30 PM

Anantapuri Express (6123) leaves Madurai at 04:00 AM arrives Trivandrum at 11:00 AM

Quilon Express (0727) leaves Madurai at 11:15 PM arrives Trivandrum at 06:40 AM (overnighter)

If you do not want to spend time at Madurai, then the Egmore Express (6714) and the Quilon Express (0727) is an ideal combination, provided they are on time. Even a slight delay in the Rameshwaram segment and you will be cutting it too. The better option would be the Chennai Express (6102) and the Quilon Express combo.

The other combinations are great if you plan to spend half a day at Madurai.

The car is another option, which can be at your disposal and you can stop at important places like Ramnad, Tiruchendur etc on the way. However, you will need to factor a tedious 8 to 9 hours on the road. It depends on your budget and personal preferences.

Hope this helps.

Rajan
