Outdoors Rameswaram is famous as a pilgrimage spot for Hindus. Legend has it that Lord Rama of the Hindu epic Ramayana, returned to Rameswaram after defeating Ravana. Here, along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman, he worshipped Lord Shiva to wash away his sin of killing a Shiva devotee (Ravana). This temple therefore houses the Shivaling that was worshipped by them. Apart from mythological importance, the temple with its 22 wells is popular for its architectural excellence.
