Tour description provided by Viator

A town that is full of life one day may face the wrath of God and within a short span of time turn into rubble. Dhanushkodi is one such example it is now a town of just a few fishermen and remnants of its history. Though Dhanushkodi has been officially named a ghost town or city of the dead, it doesn’t give goosebumps. Instead, the charm of this ‘city of the dead’ will indeed make one’s heart long to come here again and again
