Dhanushkodi | A Visit to the Abandoned Town
The photography tour to Dhanushkodi was organized twice. It is a deserted town at the south-eastern tip of Pamban Island of Tamil Nadu, India. It is about 24 kilometers west of Talaimannar in Sri Lanka. During the 1964 Rameswaram cyclone, this town was damaged and remains abandoned in the aftermath.
We took our 10th batch students as part of our practice session. Our students went together under the guidance of the Faculty. Next, the 12th batch too had an opportunity to visit this place for photography.
Dhanushkodi is the best place for Landscape and Portrait Photography. During the tour, our students visited Dhanushkodi beach, Adam’s Bridge, Pamban Island. The white sand beach is mainly deserted. So one can have a silent walk on the beach, without any disturbances.
As the place Dhanushkodi is called as the abandoned town, one another name is also part of the place. It is also known as Ghost Town.
