Hi ggopi01,

Welcome to Trip Advisor.

Rameswaram is a town meant for what you call "Pitru Tharpanam", i.e., performing rites to our ancestors. It is very auspicious to perform these ceremonies there as the mythology says that Lord Rama, himself performed the rites there. It depends on what kind of ceremonies you prefer to do. This towns is full of purohits from all parts of India and you can fix one the previous day. The Purohit will guide you from then and be very clear about your budget and the way you want to perform the ceremony, whether homam or just hiranyam, how many brahmins you want, whether food need to them served to them and you etc. Please bear in mind this is the most important commercial activity there and you would get people performing this in any budget.

Let me know in case you want further details with regards to this, as I was in Rameswaram just a couple of months ago to do the same. I would be able to guide. Everything can be prebooked and would be ready when you arrive there.

Feel free to revert for any clarifications.

Regards

Prasanna

Dear Shri.Prasanna,

Greetings to you and to your family!

As I am planning for a one day stay at Rameswaram, I wish to pre-book arrangements so that when I reach there I would be in a position to complete the ceremony and return on the same day. Kindly help me with details. Best wishes and Regards,

Hi Mr.Gopinathan,

I have messaged you with the contact details of the people who would be of use to you.

I presume you would reach Rameswaram latest by 7.00 AM, as that would give you the time to complete the ceremonies and also have a darshan of the main deity. I stayed in a property called Hotel Queen Palace.

Feel free to revert for any clarifications.

Dear Mr.Gopinath,

4.00 AM would be the right time. My suggestion would be to fix up a hotel, check in, wash and change, and leave for the famous Spatika Lingam Dharsan. After that you may come back to the room and relax for maybe half an hour or start the ceremonies as per the arrangement with the sastrigal. This way you would finish the ceremonies and the holy dip before 11.30 or 12.00 depending on what all you have planned. After lunch, you will have sometime to catch up some sleep and then do a sight seeing of Rameswaram from 3.00 PM to 6.00 PM, to leave by 8.00 PM. This is only a suggestion and you may decide on based on your choices.

Have a great trip and feel free to revert for any clarifications,

Regards
