Here are some key points about the history and special features of the Agni Theertham:

Agni Theertham : Water of Heaven:

Indian mythology, tales, and beliefs are all ingrained in their culture. These are best expressed in locations that offer tourists entertaining legends and anecdotes from bygone eras. Everywhere you travel, a tale is told to you that, in many ways, immortalizes the place. The great Indian epic Ramayana's story will captivate you at Agni Theertha beach in Rameswaram. Tourists frequently visit this beach to take advantage of the golden sands and waves that only a stunning beach can offer.

The renowned Ramanathaswamy Temple is the reason for Rameswaram's fame. There are sixty-four "Tirthas," or sacred water bodies, in the city. Within the temple are twenty-two of these. These theerthas are among the primary sacred sites in the area, and bathing in them is said to be equivalent to penance. Agni Theertha is regarded as the most important beach connected to the temple among these theerthas. It is situated across from the temple on the east coast.

According to legend, Goddess Sita begged her younger brother Lakshmana to start a fire in order to demonstrate her purity to her husband Rama. To support her claim, she sat in the fire. She was unharmed by the fire and did not sustain any injuries. The fire god Agni emerged to confirm it, and Sita demonstrated her purity. But Lord Agni wished to worship Lord Shiva and bathe in the ocean to wash away the guilt of touching the Goddess. As a result, the location became known as Agni Theertha. It's said that taking a bath in Agni Tirtha will erase all of your sins.
