You can walk and jog across the bridge, or you can catch a train instead for the opportunity to take fantastic photos of the bridge contrasting against the blue sea.

  • Nothing special of the road bridge, except to view the Pamban Railway bridge from the road bridge at the closest point.

  • Historical landmark. This pamban bridge is the main land connection to Rameswaram otherwise Rameswaram is island. Pamban Bridge is opened by Rajiv Gandhi in 1988. It took almost 14 years to complete the 2.4 km long bridge. Before this only railway bridge was there to connect Rameswaram which was opened in 1914. Now there is new railway bridge construction is going on.
  • Beautiful place. The driving experience on the bridge is amazing. Make sure you plan in such a way that you can see the train on the track which is visible from the bridge. Do visit one time in life to this place.
