A lost Island - Dhanushkodi

Dhanushkodi - A small island in South India that was completely washed out by a cyclonic storm on 25 December 1964, killing hundreds of people. The pics below shows the remains of the island after 46 years.

This van is the only access to the island. No other vehicle can go due to loose white sand

A boat submerged in sand

Scary sea water seen after the shore

Remains of a school

Ruins of a church

Some building

Skeleton of a boat

A temple
