Here well is present and surrounded by sea water, water taste is sweet slightly salted. This well is created by lord sriram arrow when sita devi asked water. Very peaceful place and nearby small temple present. Must visit and have sip of water!!! Most of the visiting places are nearby so very easy to cover the places. No entry fee and no charges for parking. Restaurants are not present near to this place, needs improvement.

Witness Ramayan in action here. The place finds mention also in Valmiki Ramayan. Rameshwaram is well-known for its temple tanks but a place that is of special importance is the Villoondi Theertham. Legend has it that this was created with lord Rama shot an arrow to get fresh water from the sea to quench his wife Sita’s thirst. Located about 7 km from the Ramanathaswamy Temple, this place offers some stunningly beautiful and dramatic views of the sea. Incidentally, the place is named Villondi or 'buried bow' as it is believed to be the place where Lord Rama buried his bow and arrow. A long platform leads you to this holy well and it is magical to walk on it as you see the sea from both the sides. The water in the well is quite mysteriously sweet in spite of being surrounded by salt sea water all around and devotees believe it will do them good if they take a sip of this holy water. There is a small temple like structure adjoining this place and as you stand at the edge of the platform, you can see statues of gods and goddesses in the water bed. The sight is quite fascinating, just like the place itself. 2
