Pitra Dosh Puja Rameswaram procedure benefits and cost

Pitra Dosh Puja Procedure in Rameswaram, Puja Timings, Cost, and Online Booking Details.

Importance of Rameswaram

It is said that Lord Rama desired to worship Lord Shiva to relieve them from Brahmahatya Dosha for killing Ravana, a Brahmin. Rama asked Hanuman to bring a Shiva Lingam from the Himalayas. As Hanuman gets late for the puja, Lord Rama worships the Shiva linga made out of the sand by Sita Devi.

Ramalingam, the lingam that Sita made out of sand, and Vishwalingam, the lingam that Hanuman brought from the Himalayas. Considering that Hanuman was the one who brought Vishwalingam into existence, it is claimed that Rama instructed him to worship it first. This practice is still followed to this day. Rameswaram temple was built in the 12th century during the reign of Pandya kings.
