Pilgrims should take their own vessels and rope and draw water out of the Theerthams(mostly wells) in different parts of the temple. No water should be allowed to go into the wells after bath. The baths refresh both the mind and the body. The waters have medicinal properties besides that the mystic SANCTITY attached to each of them.

The 31 Theerthams outside of the temple, extend from Devipatnam(Navapashanam) and Tirupullani (Darbhasayanam) near Ramnad to Mandapam. Pamban Thangachimadam and Rameswaram though they are the treat traditional importance, many of them have not been properly maintained and so most of the pilgrims do not take the trouble of visiting these places. Several of them are also not easily accessible.
