    Kilakarai has great historical significance and is a costal city. It is located in the Bay of Mannar, few kms away from Ramanathapuram. In the Western part of the Kilakarai is a place called as Ervadi and in the Eastern part of this Kilakarai is Sethukkarai and both of this surrounded by pits and to differentiate this pits two beacons lights are placed. Between these pits the ships are passing through. During olden days a particular community of people called Maraikkayar Muslims had their own ships and they used it for the commercial purposes. So in that memory of those people who lived here, the streets were named after them.
