Pamban Island (E India)

Characteristics

Description

Pamban Island (also known as Rameswaram Island) is low, sandy, and well-planted with coconut trees towards its W end, where a broad peninsula extends about 3 miles N.

The chain formed by Pamban Island, the shoals of Adam's Bridge, and Mannar Island of Sri Lanka separate Palk Bay and the Palk Strait in the northeast from the Gulf of Mannar in the southwest. Pamban Island extends for around 30 kilometres in width from the township of Pamban in the west to the remains of Dhanushkodi towards the south-east. The length of the island varies from 2 kilometres at the Dhanushkodi promontory to 7 kilometres near Rameswaram. The area of the island is around 67 square km.
