About Agniteertham

Agniteertham is the eastern sea shore opposite to Rameswaram. One of the 64 sacred baths in Rameswaram, the Agniteertham witnesses thousands of pilgrims who visit the teertham to take a holy bath in the waters of Agniteertham. They also perform holy rituals such as prohithams, yangnya and tharpanam. Tharpanam is done by the pilgrims in honour of their ancestors. 

 

The belief goes that one who takes a bath in this holy sea does away with all his sins and becomes pure again. Also, the mixing of ashes of the dead in this sea will bring peace to the dead person's soul. The childless couples can be blessed with a child if they perform poojas in the shores of Agniteertham. 

 

Pilgrims take bath in the shores of Agniteertham any time of the year, especially on full moon and no moon days.
