12. Dhanushkodi, Tamil Nadu

One would wonder how a vast, empty seaside town washed away by a tsunami 50 years ago falls into a list of must-see destinations. There is nothing left in Dhanushkodi today. Located at the tip of Rameshwaram it is the only land border between Sri Lanka and India. Yet the ruins of this town tell a poignant tale as you see the remains of a railway line and a station that were engulfed by nature’s fury.
