Varanasi Of South India

It is believed that a pilgrimage to Kashi(one of the most revered pilgrimage ) is incomplete without a pilgrimage to Rameshwaram. Rameshwaram is a pious place where Lord Rama worshiped Lord Shiva. Another religious importance of Rameshwaram is that Lord Rama built a bridge known as Ram Setu at Rameshwaram to cross over to Sri Lanka.
