The temple and the island of Rameswaram have acquired this name since, Lord Rama worshipped Lord Shiva, the God of Gods here on return from Sri Lanka.

According to legend, Lord Rama returned to India with his consort Goddess Seetha after killing Ravana, walking first on the shores of Rameswaram.

Lord Rama decided to give worship to Lord Shiva to atone for the “dosha” of killing a Brahmin.

Since there was no shrine in the island had despatched Sri Hauman to Kailash to carry an idol of Lord Shiva.
