A place of immense religious significance, Sethukarai or the Sethu Coast is where Lord Rama is believed to have constructed the popular Rama Sethu bridge to reach Sri Lanka to rescue Goddess Sita from the clutches of Ravana. Ruins of a bridge are still visible there. Tourists can visit the Adi Sethu for a sacred bath. This is the point where Lord Rama is said to have taken a bath before leaving for Sri Lanka. A small temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman is a popular attraction in Sethukarai and draws scores of pilgrims every day. The temple is also referred to as the Sethu Bandhana Anjaneya Temple and is situated right on the seashore.
