The Nambu Nayagi Amman Temple in Rameshwaram is held in high esteem by the locals. The temple is at a distance of 8km from the main temple at Rameshwaram. One has to travel towards Dhanushkodi from Sri Ramanathswamy Temple, to reach Nambu Nayagi.
The temple is dedicated to Lord Rama and thousands of Rama devotees flock to the temple every year during Dushera. It is believed that the temple was built sometime in the 14th century and was constructed by the locals of Ramand itself. This is perhaps the reason that the temple is situated a little away from Rameshwaram.
The area surrounding the temple has been done up really well. A tired traveler can rest under the shades of the trees planted around the temple. The surrounding gardens are blooming during spring time, and the riot of colorful flowers is a scene to behold. The pleasant and holy sounds emanating from the huge bells installed in the temple are sure to soothe both body and mind.
