After Rama won the war and crowned a new king of Lanka,Vibhishana, requested Rama to destroy the bridge. Rama broke the bridge with one end of his bow. Hence, the nameDhanushkodi or ‘end of the bow’ (dhanush meaning ‘bow’ and kodi meaning ‘end’). It is also said that Rama originally marked the spot for the bridge with one end of his famous bow that he strung to marry Princess Sita. The Kodhanda Ram Kovil temple marks the place where Rama is said to have begun his journey to Lanka.
