*** Viscount Valentia, George Annesley described this temple at Rameshvaram (in Tamil Nadu) as: "one of the most sacred and most splendid in the East. It is built on the sea-shore, at the extremity of the peninsula of India […] This massive workmanship reminded me of the ruins of Egyptian architecture."
