Rare sight of seagulls in Rameswaram's Dhanushkodi leaves tourists enthralled

[India], Feb 12 (ANI)

On Wednesday, a flock of seagulls came towards the Rameswaram's Arichal Munai point in Dhanushkodi.

The tourists who had come to take a look at the beautiful beach and ruins of a town were excited after the rare sight of seagulls.

After a cyclonic storm hit the coastal region in 1964, Dhanushkodi was left in shatters. The scattered remains of a church are seen over a vast stretch of land, which still has tourists coming from around the world.

Prior to the 1964 cyclone, the small island served as a major tourist spot and shares its only land border between India and Sri Lanka, which is one of the smallest in the world -- just 50 yards in length on a shoal in Palk Strait.
