Holy wells in Rameswaram to be spruced up
All the 22 holy wells in the famous Lord Ramanathaswamy temple here would be spruced up to enable devotees take their dips without any trouble, Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Trust Commissioner Dhanabal on Friday said. Besides, more than 30 holy water sites outside the temple would be identified and encroachments removed, he told reporters after a three-hour visit to the temple, thronged by pilgrims from across the country. The speciality of each holy water site and the rituals for taking bath would be explained in Tamil and Hindhi through notice boards, he said. He also ordered the officials to keep the temple lodge clean and make it attractive.
