Dhanushkudi, Ramanathapuram, Tamilnadu

On day-2 of my South Tamilnadu trip, I drove to Dhanushkudi also after my visit to Kurusadai Island since I had time and since I wanted to visit once more... but this time I just went to the point from where one usually takes those Jeeps or Matador Trucks which have 4-wheel drive to drive further few miles on the white sand to the farthest Point. Those photos/ slides are here. The photos that I took this time are here. Is it not a wonder that everytime you shoot the same place the results turn out different or you find that you missed something earlier?

After this visit I come back to my Govt Bungalow and rest.. nothing else to do..! I could have seen Chettinad houses and come to Mandappam same day evening and then after doing these visits I could have gone to Kannyakumari....this because I did not spend time to see Rameswaram temple... which I had seen earlier.

Next day I went to Kannyakumari.



Hi! I had been to Dhanuskudi once.Such a nice place. Kurusadai Island with its coral reefs should be visited in low tide.
