 As part of the 150
th
 birth anniversary celebrations of Swami Vivekananda, VK-nardep has taken up the renovation of the 16 sacred
teerthams
 of
Rameshwaram
. This is the continuation of the report series of the progress of the project. As the
Teerthams
 are getting revived they are now getting used by the community for both day today use and also for ritual purposes. Many of the
Teerthams
 are also situated near the local village shrines – particularly sacred trees. The
Teertham
 renovation project is revealing a greater pattern of embedded eco-veneration in the bio-cultural knowledge system of the island.

Almost perennial presence of water in most of the Teerthams may be the cumulative result of such many eco-cultural practices enshrined in the local traditions. [Left] Fresh water oozing out of

Nakula Teertham
 and the presence of water inside the dry
Teertham
. This may be the cumulative result of many such eco-cultural practices enshrined in the local traditions.
 
The local people are now getting interested in the maintaining of these
Teerthams
 which are being renovated. For example a retired military person Shri.Bhoopati, stated how the
Hanuman Kunda Teertham
 after getting the new look, has become important in his life. He expressed his desire to be part of the team to maintain it in the future. A housewife Tmt.Vanitha expressed gratitude and explained how the
 Angatha Teertham
, now a sacred well, was once a source of polluted water harboring disease causing insects. But now it has been transformed by the renovation work into a source of good water for daily usage of the local community. A daily labourer and shop keeper stated emotionally how
Jambhava Teertham
, now renovated with seepage tank by Kendra is helping the local community with daily water – during these water-deficient months.
 
Water Democracy through Sacred Geography: The renovation work is making the local people realise the worth of these resources which till now has been ignored and left in ruin by decades of neglect.
